The chickens are now attempting to share their space. At first, the littles were in their hutch in their own run on the side and the hens had their yard/run on the front of the coop. They could see each other and seemed to communicate a little through the fence. This weekend we cut out a big pop door on the littles' side of the coop, so now they can all make use of the coop and both yards. The hens have decided it's fun to run the pullets and cockerels into the coop and intimidate them, eat their food, and bawk, chase and peck at will! The littles are actually almost as big as the hens, except my two boys who are both bantams, but they seem to hold their own for the most part. I haven't seen any MAJOR trauma from the girls, but I sure don't want it to get to that point. They have been free ranging together for almost 3 weeks, so I didn't expect so much crabbiness! Should I leave them alone or is that asking for trouble?? First timer, here!
