As the title explains, we have 3 hens right now. In spring we want to add more birds. Mainly Dominique but as I said my wife wants to add Road Island Reds. I would like to add some Delaware. My concern is since Dominique hens are so docile they will be picked on or ostracized by the new comers. Also what is the best way to introduce new chickens to our micro flock? Can we slip chicks under a broody hen? Like you do hatching eggs? Will a hen raise chicks that are not her breed? Also is a separate coop for different breeds or new comers in general a good idea or a bad one? I hope this question is placed in the right forum. If not please let me know.
