Flock integration at 8 weeks - we did it!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I grossly miscalculated the time to raise baby chicks and mix them in with our adult hens. When I brought home chicks in January, I only looked ahead as far as how long until they would feather out and be coop ready. When I looked at the recommended timeline for integrating a flock - 16 weeks - I was horrified.

 

Luckily I found help here on BYC. 

 

We moved the babies into the coop three nights ago and so far so good

 

Thank you thank you BYC!:bow

My little flock includes Pippa, a Belgian Mille Fleur d'Uccle, Ginger, an EE and three babies added January 2016 - Bella the BO, Ava the Australorp and Nugget, a RIR.
