    I hatched 2 chicks that are now 7 weeks (both roos) I then hatched 10 chicks that are now 4 weeks old. Is it okay to put them together now? the 4 weekers are a little too old to stay in my sunroom. I'm a little concerned about the older roos picking on the little ones, but hoped since the little ones out numbered them it might be okay.

    Advice?

    Is there a big size difference? And what breed do you have?
