when i do it i put the new hens in a small coop next to the big coop with my flock and let them get used to each other for about 1 week then let all of the chooks out together to free range. Then that night lock them all up in the big coop and thats it. you still get the occasional peck but nothing to worry about and usually buy 2 weeks they are all old friends

good luck

Really good advice CC I will try this method next time I need a few new girls
