    I have 9 - 14 month old chickens and then I have 20 - 11 week olds. They have been in seperate coops and runs with wire and a gate inside and outside. So they see each other trough the wire. I want to open the outside gate and see if they mingle together. Is it best to do this late in the afternoon or morning time?

    Whenever works best for you. I would say go for afternoon, early evening. That way everyone has had some time to work out any restlessness from being cooped overnight.
