    I have 12 6 week olds out in the big coop, and 24 3 week olds still in the house. Can I put them all together in the big coop, or will the little ones get picked on?

    Ok, well I decided to go ahead and put them together and watch them closely. So far so good!!!!!!!!!! The older ones actuallyseem a little afraid of the babies and ar keeping to themselves. The babies, one the other hand are more curious and a few brave ones have joined the older flock without incident.
