    i have ten 14 week old chickens! Can i start putting them in with my older chickens or is this a bad idea? theve been outside in a coupe to by thereself but they are quickly out growing it. ive put too much time and love in to these chicks for something to happen to them now! i hatched all ten 14 weeks ago and they are all doing great!

    if you can try putting wire between the younger and older ones so they get used to seeing each other before they are all mixed in. Then you should be fine putting them together after that but watch their behavior.
