I let the chicks out today into the coop while i cleaned their brooders. After i finished i decided that i was going to let them into the run and supervise them with my older lot, i was pleasently surprised at how well it went, only a couple of small pecks from my 20 week old pullets. I have been wanting to integrate them for a few weeks now as they are out growing their brooders, but was scared as my 2 eldest hens are bullies. I kept the 2 bullies out of the run today when i let the chicks out, my other pullets and a 16 week old cockerel were great with them. If it went well today does this mean they will be ok with them from now on or should i carry on letting them freerange together every day for a few hours before i let them all loose together permenantely? Also how should i proceed with the bullies being introduced to the chicks? PS the chicks range between 16 to 11 weeks old.
