I am looking for the best, least traumatic ways for my birds and me to re-organize. I have 2 trios of Mille Fleur d'Uccle and ideally I would like to consolidate and put all of the hens with my best roo and the other has been offered a home with a 4H'er who has "bantams" but no bantam roo. I have no idea what he has and I don't think he knows either. When I ask his father, he just hems and haws and tries to describe them, but doesn't know a name. At any rate, he would have the run of a small flock of hens. The questions I have are: 1. How stressful is it on the roo to make that change and am I setting up a potentially disastrous situation for him? 2. What are the same concerns for the hens on my end and is there anything I can do to make their transition into the new group easier? I was thinking about putting the hens in a cage inside the pen for several days with the trio so that they would really be in the middle of things, but no one could get to them to beat them up.
