Have seen similar posts but have a few more questions. I lost one of my 2 year old hens to dogs this past week. I only have 2 hens so I am down to one. I brought home a 1 year old Barred Rock as a companion 3 days ago and my older girl is not being too nice. Won't let the new one roost with her, doesn't want to hang out with her when they free range. I am keeping them separated but where they can see each other when I am not home. Is this just a matter of time or should I consider a 3rd hen to mix it up a little? My other 2 girls grew up together so they were very close. Thanks so much for anyone's input.
