I have three bantams all mixed breed a leghorn a light sussex and one i have not identified, however today my son came home with a ( full size ) chicken as she was the bully in her flock, the owner wanted rid. I tried to put her in the run with mine ,however the light susex showed her who was boss , so much so that i feered for her life and removed her.so she spent the day within close proximaty of the other birds but outside the run, tonight i put her back in and she is now roosting with the flock , however i am concerned that tomorrow the same will happen, my question is ? will she be accepted by the flock? and how long before she is safe to stay in the run?and thirdly . will i have to get rid of her as she will never be accepted?
