Our 7/8 wk old pullets have been in a sepaerate coop/run next to the grown chickens for a bit and today we free ranged them together. Our rooster was the only one of the grown chickens to come out and investigate. He mostly let them know he was top dog by pecking their necks if they got too close...an occasional chase....our baby barred rocks were both picking fights...with the roo and the hens through the fence...is this strange for BRs? I thought they were generally docile. They love being held and getting attention but sure were strutting their stuff. I think we are a long way from full integration but its a step in the right direction.
