    I currently have 2 Red Star hens and 3 Rhode Island Red pullets (3 months old) at my business. I also had 18 various breed (mostly sexed pullets) at my house (6 weeks old). I took the young ones out to see the older ones yesterday to see how they get along.
    They seemed to get along so well that I left them out there. Later, I went out to check on them and I found 2 snuggled up next to the older ones. I guess they get along IMG_5460.JPG IMG_5462.JPG

    PDZ horse stall refresher. It's amazing. No smell. I use a kitty litter scoop.

    Excellent!
    Lots of space, nice coop and roosts.
    Number and age ratios may have greatly helped in this integration.
