    my little ones are still too little to be completley outside. My problem is when they get older like a month and old enough to go outside im worried about the other chickens and how they will react. I mean I've introduced them all to each other but still? I know theres a pecking order and what not. But the little ones seem to be fine with the bigger ones and visa versa.

    One of the little Australorps took on my Rooster Cotton which was funny, until Cotton had enough and showed who was who lol [​IMG]
    When the new batch is about a week old will it be okay to keep them in the coop, but seperated though?? Until they are okay with each other:fl

    I don't put younger birds with older birds until they are at least 16 weeks.
