    As of last Saturday we introduced 2 rocks to our 3 reds. Yea I just put them in the mix ....feel kinda bad on that move., but there interacting a bit....no fighting just pecking order

    so I walk to the pen there's a red and a rock up on the perch together I said wow....progress :) definitely want to pic of that but I don't have my phone with me. Adjustment faze.

    Next rearrange feed areas and perchs
    And wait for my 2 new eggs.

    No need to feel bad cos it worked out ok. Personally I put new birds in the main coop, in a mini-coop with the main objective of getting them familiar with where to go on a night and not for purposes of reducing the chance of getting a beating. I free range them so they never seem to squabble too much.
