I'd really like to find a way to combine my chicks with my pullets in one coop -- but so far our trials have not gone well. My chicks are 6wks old and fully feathered but obviously small compared to my 30wk old pullets. I have my chicks in a brooder in the barn and the pullets in our coop/run. I have put the chicks in a cage near the coop and in the coop so the girls can see them …. and three times I have tried to let the chicks in with the girls. The girls chase them around and nab them … grabbing feathers and terrifying the chicks. They didn't draw blood … but I am thinking if left alone w/o me there they would? So am I doomed to build another coop until the chicks are as big as the pullets? Then I can merge them? What's the right way to combine? Thanks for help and thoughts …. My 30wk old girls are my first flock …. and they are delightful to each other ….. but ummm not so much to the chicks.
