First, to all of you who went through my recent first experience of ordering baby chicks, thanks. Now for the proof of my insanity. I have another order of straight run chicks coming the week of the 24th. My first group will be about 2-3 weeks old at that point. Sadly I lost one Silver Laced Wyandotte but there are still 25 total pullets remaining. I understand that I don't want to put the new group of day old chicks in with the 3 week old monsters. But, my question is, at what point can/should I try to integrate the two groups. I am thinking somewhere along the point of moving them out to the coop which would be the end of March when things are warming up here in Central Texas. Also, I know that I will be getting some if not most Roos. I have not even begun to plan on what I will do about that. How have you all dealt with excess males...any suggestions are welcome.
