I have 7 point of lay black australopes hens and 3 roos. They are just about ready to start laying. This week, I got 7 more 2 month old chicks and placed in the same coop. These birds are just barely feathered out. The older birds wont let the younger birds near the feeder or water. Our run is made out of two seperate dogpens and my wife has been splitting the birds during the day to stop the pecking and to ensure the little birds get food and water. I am wondering if this bullying will stop after a few days once the older birds get used to the new additions, or will it continue. I have been planning building another coop, but working out of town right and dont have the time.
