    Hello! I have 5 chickens that are 2-3 years old. I have 4 that are 10 weeks. The little ones have been in a separate cage in the hen house for a month now. How do I introduce them? If I let them out to free range with the others, will they come back?

    Welcome to BYC! They should definitely be close to the same size before putting them all together, good luck to you.
