My chicks are now 6 weeks old ( New Hamshire Red named Gypsy 2 white unknown breed named Winter and AnnaBeth and 3 Cuckoo Maran named Sake' , Ruckus and Chicken "Nugget") and I introducted them to my 2 hens two weeks ago. It went pretty flawless. My hens are a RIR named Luna and my Araucana named Festus are super sweet, however they can be a little dominating at times which I know is normal. We have the new chicks "coop trained". They use the ramp well, roost well and know where to go at night. However my big girls intimidate the chicks out of the hen house and I always find them huddling below and have to put them in the hen house myself...this is getting very old! My question is, how do I keep my big girls from running out the littles? I live in SC but it's still pretty chilly at night and don't want to take the "let them work it out approach" right now. Or is this just something they will work out themselves soon enough? Please help this chicken mommy. I want ALL my sweet babies to be safe!!
