    Right now the 3 month old cochins are in a cage in the coop and the 4 month old barred Xs are running around.

    Usually either prople have them free range together or put the new ones on the roost after dark, so the old ones don't discover them til morning. A large place to free range with some hiding places would be ideal.

    This maybe a dumb question but everytime I go into the coop at night they seem wide awake and are doing this light quiet clicks. Are they sleeping?
