    Have two layers a Orph and Brahma there great girls, but I have just bought two ee pulletts and don't really know how to introduce them to the ladies in their run. I already have them separated but looks like they would do ok with the two existing hens?

    Welcome to BYC. I would be more concerned about keeping the newbies quarantined than introducing them to your hens right now. Keep reading, there is excellent advice on BYC about introducing new birds to a flock.

    Welcome to BYC! We're glad you joined us! I would introduce them slowly. The older girls could beat up on the younger pullets.
