    How long will it take for them to stick to together? I free range them everyday all day. The three new girls are off on thier own. And the rooster is picking on one of the three. They away from each other in and out of the coop. They have been together for like two weeks now and the pecking order has been established.

    They may never range together. Our original girls are always together and then we have the two brahmas and silkie rooster that stick closely together and they also roost in their groupings at night. It's like they are buddies. We let our littlest babies out the other day and they stick together as well. It's like they have their own flocks and then come together in the coop for the night.
