Hi Guys, I have a large coop with 11 EE in it and a smaller coop with 26 Cuckoo Marans, BO and Cochins , their outside runs share two chicken wire walls. The Larger coop has like a backwards L shape. Any ways they are out from 7 or 8 am till 8 - 10 pm, in and out of run and coop. The younger birds are now 8 weeks old and have been seeing the EEs now 4 months old in the run next door since they were 3 weeks old. They seem to pretty much ignore each other unless one run is getting treats and the other hasn't yet. OK here's my plan. Tomorrow since I'm off work I'm going to undo part of the chicken wire that separates the two runs and hope they get along. I have 6 Polish that are 5 weeks I want to put in the small coop. How long do you think it will take them to adjust? Should I put the younger ones in the coop too or is just letting them in the run good enough for now and they'll find their way into the big coop? Thanks for any info and experiences you all have and share. edited to add. We do have roosters if that makes a difference. Two EE and a lot in the younger ones till we pull a few out. I want to try to keep the 2 EE roos and 1 BO, 1 CM and 1 Cochin.
