I have 26 new chicks. Once they are feathered out, they will be raised in the brand new coop & run we have nearly completed. I already have 5 Barred Rocks that are 6 months old. They are in an older, smaller coop. Ultimately, I want all of these fools together in one coop/run. At what point should I move the older girls in with the young girls? Should I expect murder and mayhem? I'm hoping the ratio of 26 young ones to 5 older ones will allow the younger ones to not take a terrific beating...plus I'm thinking the younger ones will have the "home-field" advantage. I really am desperate for input/advice/guidance from anyone and everyone. Thanks, in advance!
