Next week I will be putting my 7 week old babies out in their grow up coop. They are feathered and in good shape, I have been reducing the temp. in a large brooder cage significantly to acclimate them to the 20-30 degree weather here in WV. I am considering putting a very docile, bottom of the pecking order 7 month old pullet with them for training and companionship. Does this make any sense? Do I just leave them on their own and let them figure everything out. I am not too worried about the cold, but what about a dim light to keep them from piling up when it gets dark because they have been under an infra-red light since they were born. Any advise would be appreciated.
