I've read loads of the previous threads on here about this but I'm not sure how to apply it in my case, I'd appreciate advice.
I have one spekledey hen who lives in an omelet eglu and free ranges in our garden in the daytime. We also now have a 6 week old blue ranger and a six week old black rock. We have had them for two weeks and they have been living inside with some trips outside in a small rabbit run whilst my hen free ranges in the garden around them. They are now spending all day in the run in the garden
For the last two days they have had a supervised visit on our enclosed patio with our hen and there hads been some pecking over food but not much.
What do I do next....the eglu isn't big enough to set up a separate compartment inside. I could just put them in there one day with her and sit it out but there would be nowhere for them to escape to. I assume they would need to stay in for a few days so they knew it was home so they would be in very close quarters.
Free ranging together would give them all space but I'm not happy to let the chicks free range yet as they are small enough for a cat to get and also don't come to call so if they wandered off into our shrubbery I wouldn't know how to get them back
