  How I introduce new Chickens to my flock
When I first started out I only had 6 laying hens so bringing in new ones wasn't a hard thing to do. Due to my birds love of flying I have clipped thier wings so now they can only glide. When I first bring in new hens to the group I keep them seperate for about a week in a coop and run area next to my original flock, this gives them a chance to see and squak at each other with out any conflict. After the first week I let them mingle togeather a few hours a day but the new flock has not had thier wings clipped yet in case they need to get away fast. Generally by the third week the pecking order has began and by the 4th week I can clip the wings.You will still get the Hen that is or wants to be the leader so eliminating all fights is almost imposible but harnless non the less
