I have a seven week old BR chick that I have been raising in my kitchen in a large box. There were originally two chicks, but one died unfortunately. Now the chick seems sad and lonely and crying. When can I move her to the coop (where I have 3 six month old hens)? I've been putting her outside with the hens as they freerange during the day. But when I move her in at night, she cries and get agitated. Is she old enough to send to the coop? I've heard I should put her in at night, but how old should she be? I'm not sure she's big enough to jump up to the roost...
