    I have one six week old chick separated for the other flock members within the coop/ pen. When can I put the chick in with the flock?

    I would wait till there 4 to 5 mounts old. But first make sure that the chicks and the hens can see and interact with each other, but through a fence so they can not harm each other. When you mix the two ages do it at night when they are all dozzy and only want to sleep. also but lots of distractions in there run so that in the morning there not all focused on the new comers. Hope this helps you out!!
