so here is the story: we raised 4 chicks ... they're now 12 weeks old. 2 look like roo and 2 hens. These are all babies from my neighbor who then sold her year old hens in which I got one since I was wanting at least three hens. She actually is the mother of 3 of the chicks. I had to open the nesting box for her and shes been doing fine with egg laying. We left her on a perch at night and shes been locked in with them for about 10 days now. I've seen a few squabbles from one of the roo but nothing major. she was pretty isolated from them for the first 3 days and that has eased up but its still obvious 4 birds and 1 bird segregation going on. I want them to be able to range but the neighbor is too close so I'm worried if she gets free she will head back to her old area. How long until they're all happy together? When would you let her range? (the neighbor and I each have about an acre yard so easy to walk right over) side note - were gonna ditch a roo Im sure as we dont need 2... how would you make that call like what means keeper or tosser when it comes to a roo? Thanks!
