I have a fairly large flock: 3x each Buff Orpingtons, Jersey Giants, Golden and Silver Wyandottes that are 5 months old and just integrated with very little fuss with the rest of my flock, which is 10 Barred Rocks and 10 Black Sex Links...plus a Chanticler hen and rooster. A month ago I purchased 4 Araucana hens and a rooster. The hens are about 5 months old and the rooster is roughly a year and a half (I fully expected to get a 5 month old, figuring it would be easier to integrate him with our current rooster...no such luck!). These birds looked rough when I got them (it honestly felt like more of a rescue than a purchase). The pullets are extremely fearful (hiding in the corner of their coop) and are missing lots of feathers (full tails gone, bald spots on their backs). The rooster is also missing feathers in spots (moulting perhaps?), but most concerning, he has a very red and bald back end. This has not changed at all in the 4 weeks. My main question is, now that they have been quarantined for 4 weeks what do I look for? Aside from not looking very pretty all 5 are active, eating, drinking, and excreting normally. My second question is, should I do anything special when introducing the roosters? They are the same age and have spurs. Our Chanticler rooster is very attentive and protective of his hens, (I have experienced his spurs on more than one occasion!!) and I fully expect them to fight. I am not sure how to handle it if/when this happens. Any advice on these issues would be appreciated.
