Introducing our new hens

We purchased these five hens from a couple in Mars Hill.  We now have 2 Golden Comets and 3 Australorp.  The Comets are laying and scratching and pecking the others; the Australorp, however, are being more reserved.  I may need to give them a little encouragement or Glenn may decide that we will be having roasted chicken soon.  I think I have persuaded him that they may need a period of readjustment after their travel to their new home.
