I have 9 full grown laying hens and six 7 week old chicks. The hens are in the coop and the chicks are in my growing out box in the garage. Every day I take the chicks to their own fenced off run so that they can get used to each other and all can free range. So today with the sun shinning down, I decided to let my 7 week old chicks out to free range with the big girls. The lowest big girls bullied the chicks a little but nothing serious. The alpha hens (I have 2) just walked through them and didn't really take interest. Yeah they get along! I'm sitting out there watching them, but then my 2 year old son needs to use the bathroom. So we go inside. When I come back out, ALL the big girls are in the chick run and all the chicks are under the trees where the big girls usually are. I guess the dead grass is better on the other side of the fence after all. Silly chickens.
