    Dec 10, 2010
    This is day 2 of my 6 week old chicks and the older chickens mixing and mingling Both rooster and hens are chasing the babies
    The chicks are fast learners and runners staying out of the way of the bigger chickens About 3 months ago I put in a 4 month old hen with my rooster and 2 hens She really got a bad time The chicks have fared better than she did and I think its because they spent a week in the coop before I put them together This has been so much fun[​IMG]
