Boy, it did not take long at all for my 10 RIR pullets and 5 RP poults to become such good buddies. When they snuggle at night, it's very cute to see a big ball of red and 5 little pink/white heads popping out. The 5 poults are not quite big enough to go to the chicken yard with my big girls but the pullets are. Everytime I have taken the pullets out of the kennel, the poults whine louder and louder. Will the poults be ok by themselves? The poults will probably get moved to the big chicken yard with the entire flock in 2-3 weeks.
