    I've got a flock of 11 between 5 months and 7 months.

    I got 30 new chicks yesterday, now 3 days old. They are in the brooder and happy. When they are around 3 weeks they will move outside to a converted 12 x 12 shed with a run that will abut the current flocks run.

    Question is how long to wait before I can integrate?

    Wait until they are as large as the older birds.
