We have another dozen 6 week old chicks that we'll be putting out with these hens in the next couple days. For those who are introducing new chickens to an established flock, the best time for introduction is just past twilight. The flock will be more receptive to the new ones if they are added in while they are in that sleepy mode. In the morning as they all wake up together, it's like, "Oh. Hey. I think you're new, but since you're here welcome to the flock." Add them in the middle of the day and you've got fighting for days trying to decide where the pecking order is.
The next time you crack an egg open, think about how the hen that laid that egg was raised. Then think about getting eggs from a local who actually lets them have green space.
