    Hello,

    Do you have other Pullets and/ or Cockerels in Your Chook Coop? Really the answer all relies on if you have other Pullets and/or Cockerels in your coop. [​IMG]

    Okay then, Best chances are to take your little hens out at noon (When its dark) And place them in the coop. Chances are the hens will not notice and simply may not care at noon. In the morning when they wake up observe them (Your baby hens) If your older Pullets peck at them don't be to worried. They will most likely be establishing the pecking order. [​IMG]

    Take them out in the morning so they have all day to adjust to the coop.Open your chicken door to the run and let them out.
    They will love to be outside learning to be chickens.
