I have three birds (as of yesterday) a 14 month old hen, 3 month pullet, and 3 month maybe pullet (appropriately named Pat). I also have one lone egg still hanging on from my last hatch. who's due to go into lockdown tomorrow. If the little lone chick should make it, do I introduce him to the trio or keep him separated for a while? It was really cold last night so I kept the new birds in the house last night but they have a coop waiting for them. It occurs to me, though, that if I want to keep the chick with them that maybe I should just keep everyone in the house over the winter? Right now they're in a large rabbit cage in the dining room, but I could move them to the basement if they were staying. Actually, it occurs to me that I could put them in my little "green house"--which is a class enclosure around what used to be the stairwell to the basement. Hmm, I wonder if that would work . . .
