Hi, My chicks are two weeks old as of yesterday. I already have about 20 other 4-6 week old chicks as well (they are outside and in the coop). So yesterday I created a REDKNECK brooder in the coop. It separates the chicks and the older chicks. My question is do you think that they need to stay separated or can I let them go with the rest of the chicks. Another thing I was thinking was letting them out in the coop and just letting them all be together at night. I was aiming toward the night thing but i'm still worried about them being too young to start a pecking order. I do have turkey poults and guinea keets as well but they are quite big. Any suggestions. I just want them to start integrating with the flock.
