Seems it's nearing time to put the babes and mom with the rest of the flock, but I'm having difficulty finding information on doing that. This young flock is coming upon 8 weeks, they have been raised by their mama, have always been outside, never with a heat lamp. I know I have at least one rooster in the bunch (he's practicing his crow), and a second is very suspicious for being a roo (the two of them don't play together well). I have a silkie (about 2 years old) roo who is VERY nice. Most of my original flock are about 2 years old, they are all standard/large size hens. Any thoughts on combining the two groups?
