We kept the old and new girls separate last night, but today it was do or die in getting these two groups to get along. Two of the older hens (Peach and Rosie) turned out to be pretty mean--chasing and pecking the young ones. I just kept separating and putting them together throughout the day and am happy to report that tonight, the young ones are roosting on the left side of the coop and the old ones are in their traditional right side of the coop. Here's to hoping all goes well tomorrow because I am going back to work
