    I have 12, 11 week Chicks, & 6, 5 week olds, I need advice on how to introduce them.
    I have them in a cage in the coop fo 10 days, and I have tried to let them out twice, but the "olders" just corner & attack them.
    Any Suggestions?

    I would just let them out for little time periods daily and everyday expand the time like 5 mins. By the time that they need to be joined together they should be civil.
