Around what age can you introduce your younger hens to the coop?

    I know its based on size not age but it's been awhile since I've had to put some younger hens in and I can't remember around what age it was. I have some 4 weeks old I want to put in the small coop...but first I need to get my 8 week olds out of there....just trying to figure how much longer I'm going to have to wait??
