    I have 4 bantams that are 6 weeks old. When can they be moved out of the brooder? They all have feathers. Here is one (which, safe to say it's most definitely a rooster)

    Are they moving to a coop of only birds that age or will they be moving into an existing flock of older birds?

    different aged birds. There are some 15 weekers, some 9 weekers, and 12 month old sebrights in there.
