I have a flock of full grown hens and a rooster, right now I have 12 - 4 week old EE Chicks, they were in a cage in the coop, but they purposely can get out into the rest of the coop, and therefore the run. The other chickens have accepted them, there has been no pecking or bullying. Today I noticed two crows fly slowly over the run, I know they aren't a threat to my full grown hens, but will they attack the babies with a rooster in the run. I know he will protect the girls , but I haven't seen him need to protect the chicks so I don't know if he will.
