Hi everyone, I can't begin to tell you the amount of time I've spent reading tips on this site- but I'm sure I'm not alone We currently have 4 golden comets that are a little over 2yrs old. We purchased 6 chicks that are probably about 10 weeks old now (2 black austrolorps, 2 buff orpingtons and 2 speckled sussex). How the heck do I introduce them and have them get along?? This is our coop- I've put a smaller enclosure inside for the "see but don't touch" method as often as I can bring them out there (what a hassle that is lol). My older gals are not impressed. They scream and cluck for hours each day. I've done that for probably a total of 7 days. Yesterday, I let the older gals out to free range and brought out two of the littles on the grass. The older ones ran over and tried to attack the little 2 and managed to pull out feathers. They weren't just pecking, more like attacking. I REALLY want them to all get along as it would break my heart to give up either set knowing where they would end up :\ PLEASE HELP!! I heard the idea of putting them in the coop at night, but how come all I imagine is waking up to a blood bath the next morning. I was thinking of putting a divider inside the coop part so they can spend nights together first?? I'm scared out of my mind for their first real encounter. Thank you so much for any insight or tips and tricks that have worked for others!!
