Ok first off I apologize if this question has already been asked but couldnt really find anything....I have two sets of chickens same kinds just one set is older. Three days ago I put my little hens in with my big hens. The big ones dont really bother the little ones except when they try to eat. I have food and water inside the coop so I thought well maybe I will put another food and water outside for the little ones. Nope big ones think that is theirs too. Need some advice please

I also do the 2 station feeding when I add younger birds to my flock. Also when I fill the feeders I will throw a handful or two on the ground away from the feeder, so the lower/younger hens can start eating while the "boss" hens eat at the feeder. When the older hens are done, then the younger hens can eat without too much hassle.
