We are going to move our four 6 week old chicks out to the hen house tonight, if all goes as planned. They will have their heat lamp if it gets too cold, but I don't think that it will be needed. Things are going great with them, my problem is what to do with my three 1 week old chicks. They are in the brooder in the house beside the big girls and they were just getting used to each other. I don't want to separate them and then have to reintroduce everyone all over again. Can I move their brooder into the coop with the big girls? They will still have their own little lamp, feed and water inside. I plan on cutting a little chicky door in the side when they are a bit bigger so that they can come and go as they please to get away from the big girls. I also have another batch of eggs just set in the bator a day ago and will have to do the same with them. Is 1 week too young to put out in the coop? My gut tells me it's ok, but then what do I know about chickens yet?! Thanks!
