I am wanting to move my chicks that are inside out into the main coop (in their brooder) and then after a week let them out. They will be 5wks, introduced into a mixed flock of cohcins 8wks and barred rocks 9wks. Will they be safe introdfuced this young or should I give them two weeks out there?

Thanks in advance, Lara

i introduced 5 week old pullets to my 12 week old pullets about a month ago and the big ones are agressive and do push them around a bit. but the little ones are beginning to fight back. as long as they are fully feathered i think they will be ok but then again im new to this myself
