    I've had Isa browns 8 months old (6) & 2 Sussex chickens 13 weeks old, I've tried them together but the isa browns get a bit nasty They are separated at the moment. I guess keep trying [​IMG]any thoughts out there..

    Young birds into an established flock. Pretty common.
    Put one ISA with the 2 Sussex. A couple days later add another ISA. Then swap the flocks. 2 days later add another ISA and so on.
