We got a new hen from our Vet. the other day. She came with a clean bill of health, and was placed in the coop later in the afternoon; I think it was close to human supper time, so around 5 or 6. It gets dark around that same time, and the girls were heading into bed soon anyway. The new chicken, an Amerucana, hasn't been welcomed with welcome wings like I'd hoped. My EE seeks the new one out to peck at her. The red hens squawked a lot (talked my ear off every time I went to check on them) the next day, but I don't think they peck her. They were not happy with the new addition. The Amerucana has taken to roosting and living on a shelf in the chicken shed. (We had existing shelves in there and made them chicken friendly, nest boxes and the like) I have put food and water up there for the new bird. She's come down a few times and went outside but she mostly stays up high. How long should I expect her to be up there? Will she ever be a normal part of the flock?
