We had only three Bantum hens. They've been together since they were one day old. Last Friday, I got five more hens from another user here. The plan was solid, quarantine the new hens by having them live in the greenhouse for two weeks then move them to the chicken coop. It sounded good in theory. Unfortunately, a certain five-year-old thought they were lonely and introduced the flock. Damage done, quarantine useless. However, good news is that everyone seems healthy. They've been together for four days and no oddities. The hens are not integrating. I know it's only been a few days but I really hoped they'd get social. The three Bantums we already had are five months old, just started laying. They are still laying, no issues there. At night all the hens go into the coop together without issue. The three Bantum hens that we already had take the top perch together. Then the three larger hens from the new group take the lower perches. The Silkie however finds a corner away from the others and sleeps. The little banny insists on roosting on a very high bar in the run area. During the daytime is a different story. When I let the free range, all is good. They all go out exploring and all you see is chicken butts all over as they peck away. When they are in the coop and run, the new hens stay in the coop and the three established hens stay in the run. There aren't any fights other than an occasional peck, but they just don't seem to want to socialize. Think they'll eventually start talking? I'm looking forward to 8 hens having a hen party. Note, there is no rooster.
