    New to chickens some of my babies are almost big enough to go outside they will 6 weeks next mid next week I have 5 Appenzeller Spitzhaubens 6 mystery chicks I think 4 are Delaware's but the other 2 aren't they were unmarked and had pasty butt so I had to take them and 6 Easter Eggers that apparently according to my 9 year old daughter I had to buy because "bearded chickens are funny looking " ‍♀️ who could say no to that?

    Welcome to BYC, eggcited to have you here with us.

    Mine at that age were in a grow out pen where they could see the flock as well as the flock could see them but not touch them, the flock would talk to them and they got to see how the flock dynamics worked for a few days before supervised going out with the flock, if they did well with the pecking order they stayed out with them or went back to their grow out pen which blocked the door so they could get back in but the bigger hens could not, until they finally followed flock at roost time

    these are my first so they are a little spoiled. Not all of them have their " big girl feathers" under their wings yet a few do, but I was worried about putting them out before then. I'd rather wait until I see feathers instead of bald spots. I feel like a nervous Nelly

    We have all been there at one point lol, If it makes you feel any better day old chicks hatched in an incubator were enjoying about an hour outside time supervised with the flock this year before they would come to cuddle up to get warmed
