Ok I have month old chicks now but I was not going to integrate them in with the big girls (eight 1&1/2yr olds) till spring. Anyways my concern is that I will be introducing 30 of them at once in with the big girls. How should I do it?? A: Put them in at night and let everyone wake up together or B: Slowly introduce by setting their own little coop by the other girls coop for a week or so till they are used to eachother then put them together? Also is 30 to many to introduce at once? If I split up into groups of 10 and introduce one set then wait a week or so and introduce another then another wouldn't that be way to stressful? Like wouldn't literally each group go through a new pecking order just to start over again in a week? I'm just new at this and we are kinda flipping out on how to do it... Any suggestions??????
