Some of you may remember my last post, asking about what kind of roo to get. I did not intend to get one until spring; however, the schedule has been moved up. My drake is far too interested in the chicken hens for safety, so I will be acquiring my roo right away. This afternoon, probably. My question is, are there any special actions I should take when introducing him? I have a drake and a gander already-- both of whom are starting to show signs of spring hormones. Should I introduce him to them separately, away from the females? Obviously I will be enacting a quarantine before any of this, but I want to be prepared ahead of time, just in case. He'll get a dose of probios and electrolyte powder to boost his immune system. One final thought. I will be acquiring a new hen tomorrow. Should I try to introduce him to the new girl before they go out with the existing flock? Or should I do the meetings separately? Any additional advice would be appreciated; this will be my first experience with a rooster!
