Hi! I have 4 teenage chickens (likely 3 Roos and 1 hen) that my GLW hatched 10 weeks ago. She took good care of them until they were about 7 weeks old. They now sleep alone in a closed off area at night on a mini roost but I’ve seen at least one of them trying to get up on the big girls roost at bedtime. I need to take the separation out before the fall rain starts since the set up requires the coop hatch to be open which gets the coop wet when it rains. Anyhow... I’m rambling now. Long story short, at what point should I’be able to take the separation out and have the teenagers sleep on the roost with the big gals? I have three 1.5 year old hens. We had an Incident when they were still with mama and not separated from the rest at night where someone, I assume the “alpha” Barred Rock hen, pecked chunks of their flesh out of their backs... during the day they all mingle and keep in their respective groups... I’m worried there “babies” will get pecked on and aren’t big enough to fight back yet.. they are fully feathered and everything. But not the same size as the OGs.. help!
