I have three 5-week old chicks (a jersey giant, and 2 polish) A couple of days ago, I moved them out to the coop into a kinda makeshift brooder. I chicken wired in two of the bottom nest boxes and opened the wall in between and put their food, water, light in it. I left them closed in there for 2 days so the big girls (9 of them) could get used to them. Well today I opened a small part of the chicken wire so that the small chicks could get in and out but the big girls couldn't get in. So after I opened it I stood outside the screen door watching just incase. After about 2 minutes the chicks ventured out. 2 of the big girls came back into the coop, glanced over and went back out. Then all the sudden one who was up on a roost flew down and grabbed the polish by the head. I ran in telling her to stop and she let go. The giant ran back in but the polish just froze so I moved the big girl and then put the polish by the opening and she went back in. Well I closed the opening and came up here to beg for help. I can't stay down at the coop all day to make sure they don't attack the babies but I want to let them out. Should I just give it a go or what? Any help, suggestions, advice would be welcome. Jen P.S. sorry this was so long.
