    I am in westmoreland county. I have 5 ameracauna chicks i hatched out. They are 12 weeks old. Out of J. Belm line. I believe they are 3 hens 2 roos. Selling them locally. I thought someone on here was looking for them. They are the blacks and carry the self blue gene. Pm me if interested.

    When I add new birds, I try to make sure the new ones are at least 8 weeks. I have a small growing out coop I use after the brooder. I add the new ones at night and often keep the coop closed for a few days to force introductions. Then I let chickens be chickens.
    They often force theyoung ones to stay cornered for a week or so and will chase them, but eventually they work it out. Not pretty, but they don't really hurt each other. I do provide two waterers and feeders for a while, well seperated. Once I did have to put up wire to divide the coop for week.
    I check them to be sure everyone is getting food and water, and try not to get too upset when I see new ones cowering. Not easy, but I guess it's tough love. So far it has worked.

    When you bring new ones in please remember to isolate if they are new birds. 2 weeks away from your gang. And than what I do is inside of the coup I have an area that has fencing inside of the coup where I can get the new one or two ( or half dozen young ones) acclimated to the group and vise versa. And once they can associate with one another than I let them out. They spend a good bit of time in the coup at first and than start to socialize when they feel comfortable.

    I realize that. I was just letting him know if he/she couldn't find hens that these places have RIR chicks available through spring and summer. :)
