Around what age do yall put your seramas in their big chicken coop? I have 5 serama chicks in with their hatchmate, a silkie, who is gigantic compared to them. She looks ready to be in a coop, but the seramas are SOOO tiny.

Right now I have them in their nursery pen with their cozy coop warmer. They have a big dustbath and seem to be happy, but they also seem to get a little stir crazy sometimes. Maybe thats just the "serama spirit" as I've been told and maybe they are just playing?

They perch and they fly now....its just I have this brand new coop specifically for this little flock, the coop being so large and the ramp is pretty big too (coop has two levels). What do yall think is the best age to move them? I dont want to separate the silkie and the chicks.

PS coop is indoors in our house, they won't be outside.

Indoor coop where you can closely monitor ? I'd move them yesterday. They will love the increased space as long as they are warm enough.

Awesome. I didn’t know if it would be too big for them. They’ll be in the room where I work from home so they’ll have me as company all day lol ;). Nice and warm too!
Thanks for the advice!
