So, we have been letting the 8 week olds out of the coop and into the run during the day. We put the older hens into the yard and shut the door to kep them separate. The other day, I let the hens in with the chicks for the first time. The hens were not too interested or concerned with the chicks at first. But, the young girls started to peck at their combs and waddles. Then, they got upset and chased the chicks and pecked at them a few times. I want to let them all be together, but I am afraid that the chicks will harrass the hens and then get hurt as a result. Will they stop this behavior on their own? Any thoughts? Thanks.
