We raised chicks in the fall and then incubated and hatched the beginning of October. The chicks are almost 6 wks now. I don't know which are roosters and which are hens. If they were all hens I wouldn't worry to much but how does the dynamic change if there are several rooster chicks. My plan is to let the chickens out to free range and then pin up the chicks in the coop during the day. I would want to start free ranging them but I know they come back to roost. If they haven't been roosting in the pin I don't know how to get then to come back. I might just build a make shift shelter in the run until the chickens let them in the coop. What do you think?
