I have three 12-week old girls and would like to add 2 more. What should I do about the feed? The current ones are about to switch off medicated feed to regular, but when I join the new ones with them can they eat the same feed? Feeding them separately isn't really feasible with my small A-frame coop, but I also don't want to keep the new ones inside till they are 12 weeks old -- I look at mine now and can't imagine still having them inside!! I will try to reach 8 weeks inside but even that will be a challenge. 12 weeks is what is recommended for med. feed but is that necessary? Also, will 8 weeks old in November (here in Oregon rainy and cold but not usually below freezing that time of year) be okay to go outside? Thanks for any input!
