I have a chick (they are all 5 weeks old) getting pecked. I am going to pull her out separately until she heals. However, I am also thinking to give the whole flock more room to have half of them in a huge dog crate, the others remaining in their very roomy (but getting smaller by the day) brooder. Question: will this make it as if I have two separate flocks to introduce when I put them all in their coop outside? (coop under construction; would be nearly done but we ran into a snafu; maybe finished this coming weekend). Any tips and hints on making this an easy transition for all of us? I am thinking of switching chicks around each day, so the same 5 don't get too used to each other and end up viewing the other 5 (and the pecked one) as complete strangers. Also, as of tomorrow, I'll have a large outdoor temporary run to put them in, and plan on mixing them all (except the one with the sore) in that. With these measures will I have an issue with the 2-flock thing? Thanks for any advice!
