    we are brand new to the backyard chicken owners...have 4/ 7 month old hens ..2 bantam, a big black one and a grey/black one....my granddaughter hatched 6 baby chicks in science class and brought home the babies that are now...2 month old...we are trying to introduce the little ones to the bigger ones and the bigger ones run up to babies and peck at them...i haven't seen any blood but the babies are scared...how do i make this easier?....the little ones are a mixed bunch....4 all black with small white feathers on tail end and then 2 gold and black....no roosters here as we live in town....no eggs yet either....nice coop...thanks linda

    Congrats on getting chickens.

    Can you keep them seperated until they are closer to being the same size?
