    I have 4 roosters from my first set of eggs that I hatched. They are about 2 to 2 1/2 months old. then I have another set of babies that are about a month old. All of them in the chicken coop together however there is a boundary that separates them. I was wondering how when we can mix them together.

    To do it the safest way you would wait til they are all full grown. Flocks vary and it is possible they would be OK, especially if they can see each other through the barrier and aren't trying to attack through it. Maybe get them all out foraging and try it, with superivison!
