I've searched the forum but am still a little confused, so I figured I'd ask and hope that someone will take pity on me. I have three hens living (Delaware, Barred Rock, and Buff Orpington) in a 4X8 coop with a good sized run. I also have six chicks, about six weeks old, in a brooder in the house. Needless to say the chicks are ready for more space, but I'm uncertain about introducing them into the coop with the adult hens. Should I divide a section of the coop just for them? If so, is dividing with poultry netting sufficient to protect them or do I need a stronger cage? How do I handle letting them out into the run? Does that need to be divided as well? And how long do they need to be kept apart? Thanks in advance for the advice!
