I have 13 chicks about 6 weeks old. It's starting to look like the majority are cockerels and will be culled eventually A friend is moving and asked if I would be interested in taking all or some of her hens, as they won't be able to get a new coop built until next spring and will just start over with new chicks then. Her hens are around 1.5 yrs old. Is this a good idea? How would I go about doing it? I've read about bringing babies into an older flock and keeping them separate in a dog cage or similar, but not the other way around. Thanks for your help!
