Ok so I have Three 17month old chickens which we have had for almost 8 months. We have just received 1 pullet and 1 roo (5 months old, brother and sister) and have quarantined them for 3 weeks. We let them all out together for the first time into the garden today, there has been some squabbling between the roo and our 3 older chickens but now they are on different ends of the garden ignoring each other (brother and sister down one end and our 3 girls up the other). How long does it normally take for them to settle down together? I know they have to establish pecking order, but how can they do that if they are avoiding each other lol.
