Hi everyone, My husband I are finally back home after leaving Ohio years ago. We joined our daughter and her family, moving last summer, and were "instructed" by said daughter that we could not move without bringing her girls along. She and her husband also moved to the Buckeye State a year before and were not permitted to have chickens in their new neighborhood. The 5 EE hens handled the move better than I did, I think, laying 2 eggs in the dog crate on the way here. We have recently added seven Buckeye chicks and a lone Leghorn. They hatched April 12, making them about 9 weeks? They are now outside in the run but separated from the EE's with some secure netting, and have a coop for nighttime. My questions: how long before I can put them together? The big girls have layer feed pellets, grit and oyster shell, and the littles are on chick feed crumble, and chick grit. I understand the oyster isn't necessarily good for the littles. Is it a concern putting them together when they are eating different things? Thanks for any advice! Love this group!
