A new bird
This morning, I noticed the new bird is getting pecked at a lot, which is probably unsurprising, considering it's a newcomer and much smaller than the others. Luckily for her, she can get out of the coop while the others can't, so they can't really harm her (though they still show every sign of aggression). I left her to wonder around the yard, while keeping the rest cooped up inside. They have access to the same feeder, and the little chicken is seen but can get away from the pecking. I do hope they all get used to each other soon and order is established.
If anyone has tips on introducing a new bird to your flock, advice would be most welcome.
