dianehodges-did you mix your 8 week old pullets (I'm new to the language so forgive if I mislabel) in with your two hens?
I have 4 hens (1 year old, 2 Ameracaunas, 2 Barred Rocks) and 2 eight week old Delawares. The Delawares are sharing the coop with the hens, but are isolated behind mesh wire. We'd like to mix them soon but worry they'll be attacked. The are fully feathered out and pretty tall, but not nearly as large as the others, of course.
How soon can we mix them so the new ones are allowed out into the run. The do not have a ton of space in the coop...
