I have a question for the group, interested to hear the opinions. The pullets I have are 7 months old, one of my EEs Snow is on the bottom of the pecking order, in fact would not come out of the coop today until everyone else was out. My question is when my chicks hatch should I bring Snow in to be with them so she is not the bottom of the older pecking order or is that a bad idea because she might pick on the babies. Like I said interested to hear opinions on this.
That is not a bad idea but you should wait until the chics are older--12 weeks or so should work.
Snow may think the chicks are dinner and not flock mates.....Silly chickens!
