...am I asking for trouble here? I have two pullets, 5 months, and the 3rd ended up being a rooster, so he goes back on Wednesday and gets replaced. So, with only two pullets already in the pecking order, will be adding just one more cause a lot of trouble? As it is, the pullets I have get along well, my BR gets pecked by the RIR from time to time, but nothing crazy or blood drawing. The rooster has plucked a few of her feathers out leaving a bit of a bald spot that must be fun to pick at. Aside from that, they get along well. Will the new pullet automatically be the bottom hen, will there be a dangerous power struggle? I only have a small coop and a 10'x3' attached run. I pen them in a yard 60'x5' during the day. How should I go about introducing a new bird? When I got the bird initially, I had them in the run for a week before letting them in the yard, but I don't think I have that option with this new bird. Do I need to make an extra place for her to acclimate? What about at night, I don't have an extra roosting area/hen house. Thanks for any help.
