Yes, almost all the hens have been reared together so have been used to each others company for a long time. A lot of customers choose a range of different coloured birds or different hens depending on the colour of egg they lay. Some people have their favourite breeds and want to expand their flock with just their favourites to!
Can I add new hens to an existing flock?
Yes, it is best to introduce at least two new hens to an existing flock. There may be some pecking as the hens sort out their order. It is best to let the hens get on with it as long as there is no severe pecking or injuries being caused. It is also best to have a few feeders and drinkers spread across their pen so all hens have access and the more dominant hens don't stop the others from feeding or drinking. We also sell products to help settle hens in their new environment- just ask for details!
