I have 6 two and a half month old pullets, 3 RIR and 3 Black Austrolorps. They are living in a box in the barn and are getting a little big to be living in there even though they get to go outside into the pen every day. I have 11 barred rocks who are 11 months old and I think it might be time to combine the two flocks into one. I have been putting the pullets in the pen with the barred rocks and they have gotten to know each other. There have only been a few gentle pecks from both parties. Is it too soon to add the pullets to the barred rocks? If it's too soon, when will it be time to add them in? If I can put them in together should I just put both flocks into the pen and let the pullets go into the coop and roost with the BR's on there own? Or should I put the pullets in the coop in the evening like people recomend? Any advice would be appreciated! This is the two flocks in the pen a couple of days ago, as you can see, all is well.
