Re: November Chicken Chat Thread~~~Join in!~~~

Welcome! I never thought I'd be "that crazy chicken lady" either but I really love them. LOL How I introduced my hens is, I free ranged them together and then when they were all behaving and not ganging up on anyone (several days) I put the babies in with the big girls. But I have a rooster also, so that smoothed the transition.

Becky, I don't know if you have an incubator yet but if you do, and your roosters were mating the hens your eggs will still be fertile for up to 2-3weeks. I would collect and try hatching a few of your own. That would give you the best results. I know you were thinking of making the foam bator, you should! It was a lot of fun.
