Hi everyone I'm about to start a coop (am clearing our our garden on the weekend). We are looking to get 3 Isabrown hens at point of lay as well as rescuing 3 battery hens who are on the culling list. These rescue hens are only adopted out once given the all clear by the vet. My question is when should I introduce them. Do I get them all the same day and introduce them to the coop together? Or do I get the resuce hens first and give them a good chance to get strong before buying the Isabrowns? Or buy the Isabrowns first? Of course I will talk to the rescue place and ask their advice but it's the middle of the night here in Australia so I thought I'd ask my new American friends what their advice is. The other factor to consider is that I am new to hens, maybe I should get my skills up before introducing frail little darlings so I'd be in a better position to look after them. What do you think?
