We have 12 adult hens and 26 chicks that are 11 weeks old. Some of them are rather small some of huge for their age. If we put all of the fair size young chickens in the big coop will they be picked on less if there are more of them than the big hens? We've been through this process once before but had almost an equal number of older hens and new birds. We haven't yet decided about when we will be putting the babies in with the adults but we might start with the bigger chicks next weekend or so.
