    I have 19 hens that are about 16 months old. In a separate pen I have 31 "hens" I ordered this year that are currently 16 months old.. Turns out two are roos. Currently all are getting along well - course neither roos are crowing or active yet. But I anticipate I will need to move one in with my older girls or I will come home one day to find they have been fighting... How does one integrate a young roo in with my girls? I suspect with adding one chicken they will not be very nice...
