So, I have five 7 month old pullets that have been together since birth. They have always gotten along fairly well. Then, a couple months, ago, I added my wheaten Ameraucana cockerel (same age) in with them for convenience. Now I have 15 babies of varying ages, anywhere from 8 weeks to 14 weeks, and am trying to integrate them. My wheaten cockerel is now in a coop by himself (the "boy coop") and I want to add my 13 week old blue Am cockerel in with him, but this morning my little blue's comb was all torn up because he'd been ramming himself into the side of the run-- the chicken wire, and scraping his comb all over it, so now he's bleeding. I know for a fact that my wheaten cockerel, Hugo, was not hurting him, because I watched him just stand there staring at my little boy as he rammed himself into the side of the run, also, Hugo has had new young boys in with him before and has always, within 24 hours, accepted them and been friends with them. But poor little Athos (the blue boy) is freaking out. I'm not sure if it's because he's afraid of Hugo (since he has no reason to be) or he's trying to get out with his flock mates, but I was wondering what I should do about it. I also added all my girls (and a suspected boy) to the new coop with the older girls, and although there hasn't been any bloodshed in there yet, I noticed that all the babies were wet from the rain last night, because apparently they spent the night on the ground under the coop while the big girls slept on the roost and inside. Should I just let them sort that out themselves, or should I try to construct something for the babies to roost on that the bigger girls won't be interested in (like a lower roost or something...)? Normally, the whole Athos and Hugo thing wouldn't bother me, but I've really taken to Athos (he's already an excellent flock protector) and I don't want him to suffer just for my convenience. There is another (suspected) boy, a BLRW named Pippin, that Athos grew up with, and I could try adding him in with the boys to try and soothe Athos a bit, but since I'm still not 100% sure about Pippin's gender, I was kind of holding off on that, AND he's absolutely in love with his hatch mate, Phoebe, a sweet little splash BLRW, so I didn't really want to separate them. But I will if it means Athos and Pippin could look out for each other. What do you think? I've been agonizing over this for a week, and I really need to do something about it soon. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
