    How old are the older birds? Full grown? You will need to give them some time to get used to each other or the pecking can be bad enough to kill the younger, smaller birds. Fencing off part of the run so they can spend their days side by side but separated is the best way. It's best to do this until the younger birds are closer in size to the older ones.
