    They are approx 6 weeks old. My 2 Aussie Orps roos are about 18 weeks old. They free range in 3 tractors but the roosters were pretty rough with the gals (the rocks) so they are "on their own" with 2 pullets of their breed, they are pretty fast (the Aussie gals) and they give them a run for their money.
    Got too much going on at once it looks like.

    Wait untill the babies are about the same size as the adults before you mix em up together.
