I have just added 7 new chickens to the "flock" and we purchased a large coop to accommodate all the chickens (11 total). The problem is that the older chickens are hogging the food and the newer ones yesterday seemed scared to go in the coop while the others were in there and it was pouring outside. I didn't know what to do. They took shelter under the coop and when they got a little more courage the went in together, but not for a long time. I understand there has to be a pecking order, but I have read that some birds can peck another to death! The new ones are greater in number (7 to 4) but they are smaller and scared of the leghorns (the others are RIR). I want to know how to get them to live peacefully and if I should be concerned about them being in the same coop. Thanks in advance!
