    Ok I want to get 7 more chicks not sure onthe age but less than a month I think, and the brooding hen, can I put her and the chicks in the run with the teenagers? My other chicks are 1 month old today.

    Thanks for suggestions.

    The chicks should be fine together except they might get chased and picked a little at first because they are new. The hen could go eather way, depending on how protective she is of her chicks. She may defend her chicks, accept the new chicks, or ignore them.
