    I have 14 chickens about 12-14 weeks of age. I found out about half are roosters. I am going to get rid of all but one as I do not need that many. If I was to get about 6-7 pullets at the age of 8-12 weeks of age can I mix them together? Thank you

    As long as they don't have any diseases they should be fine you just might want to watch all Those roosters as they are sexually maturing and they might hurt the new pullets but the should be fine
