    Awww Charlie~!~ [​IMG]

    I'm glad to see these pics. I have two separate flocks of chickens and have been wanting to range my teens (well 14 and17 weeks old anyway) along with my laying hens but was worried about a big blow up.

    Were your youngsters easy to round up and get back in their pen?

    they went right back into the run on there own with in one hour of being out. I did put there food dish in there to help though but I didn't have to chase any once the first went in they all followed.

    Quote:Also to add with this I could not have the older roo out while they were all out together I tried that once and my barred rock just about got killed.

    Charlie is 19 weeks old but he attacks us and the chicks he spured my son drawing blood this morning just opening the coop to let them out I had to run down and hit him with the broom I was holding to get him off my 8 year old.
