I put some smaller chicks in with some that are 2 weeks older. The older chicks didn't bother them, I watched for quite a while on and off through the day. I left and when I went to get the smaller ones out for the night the larger chicks had surrounded them and had all four under their wings keeping them warm. It was so sweet. But now with the small ones on the ground the larger chicks stay inside on the perch. How can I get them to come down? The food and water are on the ground with the smaller babies.
