We have kept hens for a couple of years now, and have just introduced 2 new warrens. They have been kept in a separate run for 2 weeks, and then allowed to free range with the 2 old girls late evening. This cuts down on the bullying as they are just so excited to be out and about
Thinking in the next week we might be about to merge them.
Nothing better than an egg for brekkie from your own hens.
Wished we got them years before and never bothered with rabbits for the kids to be honest.
