I have six pullets that are a little over 5 months old. Im getting day old chicks(banties) this coming Thur. My neighbor keeps telling me that I can put my chicks in with my pullets for them to raise. He said to put the chicks in there when theyre about 2 weeks old or so. The girls will know what to do and their 'motherly instinct' will kick in. Is this correct? I have concerns because my girls are just 5 months old. They will be 6 months old if I wait until the chicks are 2 weeks old. Im afraid they might peck them to death or something. What to do?
