Hi all, I recently bought 8 new laying hens that are all 19 weeks old now (they have been quarantined for 30 days) and I have been trying to add them to my existing flock. My old hens will peck at them and chase them around which I know is normal so they can establish their pecking order. However my question is how long does this behaviour last? I feel terrible because every time I go into the coop my new hens are always huddled together in the corner and they seem too scared to explore. I have been separating them for a few hours everyday so I can make sure the new hens are getting enough to eat and drink ( I do have multiple feeding and watering dishes set up) They are completely fine at night once the old hens get their spots on the roost but still don’t want the new hens roosting beside them at all.
