I have a quarter of my coop barricaded off right now for my 3 silkies who are 4 weeks old. On the other side of the barricade are my 5 almost 10 week old barred rock pullets. They have been sharing the coop like this for a week now. The barricade is just some lattice, so they can see each other through it well. The silkies are SIGNIFICANTLY smaller than the BR's right now, and most likely always will be I'm guessing. When is a good age to remove the barrier? How should I go about that? I have 2 Ameraucana's and 2 Icelandics in my basement right now who are 2 weeks old. I'd like them out in the sectioned off part of the coop by the time they are 4 weeks, but if the silkies are still in there, then that's not going to work!
