    hello, i am mother hen debbie, i have 32 pullets about 4wks old. they are too active for the zoned off area, inside the coop. i also have 2, 5yr. old hens. i understand the pecking order, but i do fear for the little one safety. making side by side runs seems to be the best idea i have read so far. does anyone have a better idea?

    Sounds like a plan... that or find a place to keep the two older ones until the little ones are at least 12-16 weeks old.
