I have “4” 12 week old Easter egger chicks. They are sweet as ever. We have gotten 6 more chickens 3 roosters we are going to sell, and “3” 6 month old hens we are gonna keep. However the chicks are terrified of the hens and roosters. What should I do?
I suggest you get rid of the roosters (sell them or eat them--whatever gets them gone.) Then follow what others have suggested: chicks and hens in adjacent pens, so they can see each other but can't peck or otherwise hurt each other.

At some future point, let them together and see how it goes. If it doesn't go well, separate them for a while longer. ("a while" being anything from several days to weeks or months, depending on what works in this case.)
