    Are you asking at what age can you put the new chicks in? It depends, but I usually put mine in somewhere from 8-12 weeks of age.

    Personally, with 8 weeks between them, I would not put the peepers in with the roosters anytime soon, if ever. I will add hens to hens and roosters when all have attained laying age, but when I have tried to combine roosters with roosters in the past that did not grow up together, they usually fight a lot. I have never left them to the point of death, but it didn't look good. I guess it would depend on how many older roosters you have and how big the coops are, etc. Maybe someone else on here will have some different or better advice on this.

    Sorry about that. I have never heard of that so I guess I can't weigh in here.

    The OP is talking about pinless peepers, the blinders that prevent pecking.

    I'd wait until they are full grown before applying them. Perhaps you should ask the manufacturer or seller?
