    I'm wondering if it's okay go put two 2 week old chicks inside the coop with my other four pullets that are almost three months old? Using a panel for a divider and a heat lamp.

    Help[​IMG]

    The sooner you put them together the better. I would combine them when you can monitor them closely over a period of time. You may be surprised how they will hopefully bond quickly. Good luck.

    As long as your pullets can't get to your chicks, yes! Another member here does this and it's better for the chicks and chickens in the long run if they can see each other starting now. It will integration easier and faster in the long run.
