Well, my silkies are too big for the brooder that I have them in. Time to kick 'em out! DH says to just stick them in with the other chickens. (30 weeks or so) He says they won't kill them, but might peck at them. I have seen them peck them before. The roo objects (vocally) to them when they are all outside together. I am kinda scared to just stick them all out there together. I would like to divide our coop up somewhere, but not sure how. We might have to make another door and put in a wall. Any suggestions. (Silkies are approx. 18 weeks old) There is a huge size difference too.
