    I wish I had an answer for you.
    I have been trying for several days now to combine my 2 flocks. One is 10 weeks old the other 6 weeks old. I have had the cage with the younger ones sitting beside the wire coop of the older for 3 weeks, I put the cage inside the coop. I put the younger ones in the coop without the cage at night only to have to take them back out the next morning. Lots of pecking and fighting.
