Putting baby chicks in with big chickens

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Can you put 6 week old bantam chicks in with 4 grown chickens, one of which is a rooster? Will the big chickens hurt the baby ones?

You definitely cannot put them in, they will be killed.  Chicks should be at least 12 weeks IMO before put in with the older flock
