I have 5 pullets that were about 8 weeks old when I introduced 3 chicks that were 4 weeks old. They have all been together for about 2 weeks now but they are still segregated into two groups. The big chicks will still peck the little ones if the little ones try to eat while they are eating. But at night they all share a roost. Five on one side and 3 cuddled up on the other end. Will they ever integrate?

Thanks for the info. Next I get to battle the HOA. Apparently our rental property falls into an "Amended" HOA that has architectural oversight for our community. The nosy neighbor 3 doors down has a problem with my chickens and 3 indoor dogs. We're only allowed two dogs so she sent a letter to the property manager that we must get rid of one dog and the chickens!

My dogs are indoor dogs and only outside while we are home. They don't usually bark. They just sit and watch the birds in the run for the most part. And you and I both know that my hens aren't loud. I don't know what this ladies problem is.
