The reason I ask is, I have 3 original hens and tried to introduce 2 new hens 4 days ago, the originals shifted the new ones away every time they got close plus chased them away sometimes. I have now separated them in a smaller coop for a few days. Now my question I get pigeons in the garden that wonder around pecking with the original chickens and they don't shift them away, they get close to them but don't bother. Yet they act differently to 2 of their own kind, so do they see the pigeons as no threat or what? Col.
