Newbie here! I have 8 chicks ranging in age from 8 wks to 1 week. They are all together in the brooder right now and all doing just fine. My question is when it's time to move them to the coop should I do it in groups or all at once? The oldest is a Phoenix so fairly small is it ok for her to stay in brooder a little longer? If I do move them out to coop all together I would still have to have heat lamp on for smallest ones. And I know I have to keep them in coop for a few days anyways so they know where home is which might be a problem if I do it in two groups. Advice please!
