    Roo and pullet but what are they? Roo keeps attempting to breed the little one, is she too young? Should I separate them until she is older?

    I believe that it is a light Brahma rooster and a Delaware pullet.

    The rooster can hurt her from overbreeding. She looks young so I would separate her.

    She is about 3.5 months old. When will she be old enough to let out with the roos?

    18 weeks old is the general guideline. Do you have more pullets/hens to put in with her?

    Yes, I've got a silkie pullet the same age. I'll keep them together for a while longer.
