2 new chickens but the girls are nasty to them
I have 9 laying hens which have been together for a year & a half. My friend just got some new birds and gave 2 to me. They are about a year old. I brought them home & took them out to the coop but my other chickens will not stop picking on them so for now I put them in a cage. I really want to keep them but I don't want the other chickens to kill them or hurt them. I am wondering if anyone has suggestions on how get the others to accept them?
