    I've read a bit about moving chickens in together. I thought I would ask anyhow.

    I have 2 BO's that are about 6 wks old.
    and 5 RIR's (?) that are about 10 wks old.
    The BO's are not much smaller than the 10 wk olds (really.......considering the age difference).

    I need to move the BO's in w/ the RIR's in a couple of weeks, what is the best way to go about it?

    I already have 2 coops going (one w/ my yr old BR's - 4 hens) and one small one w/ the teens in it. And then a stage 2 brooder in the garage.

    I need to get the BO's out of the garage.

    Help.

    Oh, and I think I've caught the BYC's "disease"...........I can't stop buying them.
    My husband wonders when it will end.


    And, we now have 3 bunnies in the garage (waiting for this unusual weather to pass to move to the hutches). [​IMG]

    introduce them at night, when they are calm, they might pic on the younger ones but will be fine [​IMG]
