    We have some (4) nearly 10 week old chicks, 2 roosters (which were supposed to be hens) and 1 hens.
    At this age can we start introducing one of the rooster into the adult pen (4 adult hens). I need to separate the to roosters before there are any injuries.[​IMG]

    Yes, you could. If it doesn't go well you might have to remove him until he is a little older.
