They can see the other chickens, so they are not strangers. Would it be a good idea to move them at night, so when they wake up in the morning, there they are, sharing a coop with the Big Birds?

They are getting too big for the nursery, and I need to move some other chicks in there.

It works but there is still the normal pecking order stuff. It is just a little less stressful on everyone, you included, when you do it this way. I will be doing this very soon with my banties and standards. They are divided now at night by chicken wire in the coop. One night, the wire will come down and we shall see what happens!
