Hi, I'm a new subscriber to BYC and new to raising chickens. I incubated eggs that 12 hatched Feb. 20 and are doing great. They are now in the coop with some 6 month olds. I purchased 16 two week old chicks about 2 weeks ago and am keeping them in my living room. They have been outside in a separate run for 2 days. Coming in at night. One of my 3 months old, who I think is a roo, was scratching at the fence trying to get at the chicks. Does this mean he's going to be extra mean toward them when I finally put the chicks in the coop? I'm taking them out during the day so the chickens will get use to them. He is not the dominate roo in the coop.
