    about how long does it take the older hens to get use to another set i just put in? they try to keep them eating treats and like to chase them away from me when im in there with them.

    Did you do a nice slow introduction?

    Some times setting up another feeder and water helps to, cus then the older girls can have their own.

    yea i kept them in a smaller cage outside the bigger pen for a few days so they could see each other and sort of get use to each other. and i did think of putting two feeders and waterers in there with them. its been a few weeks now but not much has changed
