    As long as they have plenty of room to run they should be OK.

    They will have to find their place in the pecking order, so there will be some squabbling, but it should get sorted out pretty quickly.

    Should be just fine. I have some that are only 8 weeks old outside. I do have a light on them but they are much younger. At 12 weeks they are fully feathered and they will do fine! [​IMG]

    ok thanks! i am moving them in with 2 older roos that really want some girls! the reason why i dont have more girls in this pen, is because it is like the death zone! it is right be some woods and foxs come and go with chickens. but i now lock up all my chickens after dark so they should all be ok [​IMG]

    Americana-chick, I really like your avatar!
    BTW, how many chicks are you putting in with the two roos?
