    Any suggestions/advice on how to do the following?
    My older hens haven't been with a rooster for about three months, and my five-and-six-months-old pullets have never been with one. Next week, I am going to put three hens and/or pullets with a rooster in three or four groups.

    EDIT: BTW, only three six-month-old hens have been in the BARN where the roosters are now. The others are now in two individual coops where for three months there have been no roosters.
