Fada- can you fit a small cage into your coop? I usually introduce new chickens inside a rabbit cage and I move the cage inside and outside with the others until they get used to eachother. It can take a while...but sometimes it wont work out and one is always in the corner. Maybe you should rehome her to someone who keeps bantams.

Hey guys,

I rescued a chicken in Bushwick which unfortunately is not mixing well with my other 3 hens. When I put them together the other 3 jump on her and peck her quite aggressively, so past few months I've kept her separate.

Problem now is winter is around the corner and she's been sleeping outside alone, which I'm sure could get unpleasant during those cold nights.

Any suggestions/ideas? She's a little smaller than others.

Thanks,
Fada.
