    I have 2 baby chicks they are about 2 or 3 months old they are seperated from the big chickens they are on the side of the house and one of the walls is a screen. Today the chicks got ous of there area and they got in the yard with the big chickens and I did not now they got out one time I put them on the porch with the big chickens and hens stared at the chicks and started to fallow them so I thought they where killed by the hens or the rooster I found them in bushes where the big chickens go to sleep on the other side I pulled them down and they where fine does this mean they can live with the grown chickens know?

    I'd say no. It normally takes a few days of introductions before you can 'move them in'. And when the times comes for the moving day, in the dead of night, set the new chicks on the roost by the others, and in the morning it will seem like they have always been there!
