So, I integrated Splash tonight - I picked him up out of the garage and put him in the driveway. He walked over to the woodpile nearby and Sicily came to check him out. The two roos jumped under the bushes behind the woodpile and exchanged chicken noises, but nothing physical. This went on for two or three minutes, then both hopped out of the bushes and joined the girls for treats. Splash was checking out the girls, but Sicily told him they were his (that's okay, I have seven new girls I'm raising for Splash). SouthernChick was saying in her post about Col. Bok Bok that if they have 12, these boys want 13. Sicily was even protective of his exotic looking gals (guineas). All seems to be going well, so I go in to put my human children to bed. After everyone is asleep, I go outside to see about rounding up the rouge leghorns, the lone guinea and perhaps Splash. I go to the coop and count. 13? I count again. 13. Hmmm...everyone is in the coop? I then group by breed...everyone is in including Splash! Holy Cow! I must write everything down that I did in the last 24 hours. I must have communicated something telling them to be good, love everyone and go to bed when and where you should. Has anyone experienced an integration this smooth? I have 9 hens, 2 guineas and 2 roosters.
