In the converted stall in the barn I made a seperate 'coop' for little peepers. I had planned on leaving them in there until they were 4 months or at least big enough to integrate with the big girls. The last 2 mornings I found the little ones sitting on top of the frame of their little 'pen'. It's 7 feet high and they get up there by jumping from the roost, which is a home-made ladder. Then they can't get back down - so I pick them up one by one and put them back on the floor. They just turned 3 months and it seems they really want to join the group. Does this mean they're ready? They've been out free ranging before and keep to themselves with only minor squabbles. But I'm afraid they'll get beat up in an 22x11 stall.
