    Every Tom is different, you will have to watch them during your first introduction. I pen my poults inside the run during the day for a few months and occasionally let them out, they often get chased by the adults. I don't leave mine with the adults until they get a bit bigger, usually they are 3-4 months before I leave them with the adults permanently.

    Mine are out from about a month, but they are turkey or chicken hen raised and protected by the moms. The chicken hens really do a great job. Actually better than the turkey hens
