Hello everyone. i am new here and i really got some good information from you guys. thats why i decided to join the web site. well i got problem with my chickens. I have 5 buff orpington chickens and all of them almost 6 months old. i got them when they were babies. So lately i decided to buy some chicks and raise them, well i got sex linked, and 2 americanas, one of them turned to be a rooster. they are now almost 3 months old i have no problem putting the rooster with the big chickens but not the new ones with the old chickens when i put them together my old chickens go and peck on them, so what do i have to do to solve this problem?, 2- another question. Thanks. my chickens are almost 6 months old. and some of them are already laying eggs. but the question is. at what age the chickens will start having babies? i dont know about now because they just start laying eggs and the eggs are not full size yet. Thanks alot.
