    I have a flock of Bantam Faverolles they are 6 months old.
    Then I have 4 pullets that are 3 months old...... At what age can
    I introduce the 4 pullets to the flock that is 6 months old. I am thinking
    the young ones should be 6 months before I put them in with the flock with
    boys that are older....
    What are others experiences...

    Thankyou ~~Jen~~

    Younger ones can integrate at 16 weeks, but I like to wait till they are 20 weeks old.
