We got our first chickens 11 months ago and they are the sweetest girls. They are four honey-reds from Tractor Supply and made it through the winter without any difficulties, I did find out they don't like snow! About two weeks ago we got 4 more chicks - 2 Americaunas, 1 - Wyandotte and 1 - Jersey Giant. We need to expand our coop and I was wondering if we will have difficulty introducing to new chicks to the older hens, I would appreciate any tips. My husband and I are retired and live in Kent County, Delaware. We also have six dogs - 5 Beagles and a Bassett. The Bassett thinks he's a chicken.
