I live in urban Los Angeles and a fully grown adult hen showed up mysteriously at my door last week - I've now got her happily settled...free range foraging in our walled 20'x30' backyard garden with night coop and bowl of scratch. She's extremely sociable (follows me around, gets sad when I go inside, very curious about whatever I'm doing, and she squawks frantically when I put her in the coop at night -- will only calm down and go to sleep if I sit in there and talk to her). I think she needs two hen friends so they can have a Girl Power Triumverate organizing in the backyard. And keep her from being lonely. MY QUESTION: I have a friend who's a vet and she has found some rescue chicks - she'll give them to me when they're a few weeks older... (1) Can I just introduce them to my hen, or is there some magic trick to it all? (2) Should the chicks have a separate coop (her current coop is 2.5' x 1.5' including a 1'x1' raised nesting box)? (3) Is there anything I should be prepared for behaviorally? (4) My hen has a clipped beak and clipped wings. Will that be a problem since the new arrivals will NOT have clipped beaks? Many thanks!
