Hello,

 

Do you have other Pullets and/ or Cockerels in Your Chook Coop? Really the answer all relies on if you have other Pullets and/or  Cockerels in your coop. :D

Okay then, Best chances are to take your little hens out at noon (When its dark) And place them in the coop. Chances are the hens will not notice and simply may not care at noon. In the morning when they wake up observe them (Your baby hens) If your older Pullets peck at them don't be to worried. They will most likely be establishing the pecking order. :)

Huh? Where is it dark at noon?

 

Putting new birds in the coop with the flock at night can be a recipe for disaster.

Like bobbie-j sez: "chickens aren't the brightest animals on this planet, but they're not that stupid." 

They existing birds are sure gonna notice any new birds....unless you've got a lot of birds and lots of space.

I would take them out when you can watch them, to make sure that there are no problems.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

Take them out in the morning so they have all day to adjust to the coop.Open your chicken door to the run and let them out.

They will love to be outside learning to be chickens.
