I need your advise, I am a new chicken mom and I adopted 2 hens and 4 chicks. well those "babies" are now 11 weeks old and this mom is soooooo ready for them to join the big girls. I am worried though. the head hen (a RR) is a very sweet girl and had no problem what-so-ever when i introduced her to our adult buff orp.... the buffie, however, is a different story. SHE IS MEAN. to everyone!! she barely tolerates me and when she does its only because i am the only one who brings them treats. what do y'all think? can i start to integrate them this early? they are right now "separate but together" and have been for one week. and i am so sick of it. so they have seen and kind of lived with eachother for a little bit. the mamas are in their 8X8 coop at night and free range on their side of the yard all day. the little ones are in a 3X3X6 pen inside the big coop. i cant separate the yard for them so they have to be locked up all day. are they still too little?
