    The new chickens are in a dog kindle and the old chickens can see them when I let them out in the evenings when we get home But they are all ready jumping at each other thru the fence All are hens I am afraid to let them out together in the next week or so

    How old are the newer ones? If they are over 12 weeks old they will be old enough to defend themselves from the older ones.
