    I was wondering when would be a good time to indroduce my little 10 week old birds to the other bigger birds? I have them in a pen in the coop for almost a week but they seem to me pretty crowded in there and I would like to let them out with my bigger birds. I was wondering if I should try letting them mingle for a while and see how things work?

    This is my set up. You can see the inclosure for my little guys ...thanks :)

    You could do it now. Are your chickens able to get out to an outside pen or free range? Be careful when you combine them...especially the hens. Hens are more aggressive than roosters. Make sure the chicks have places to hide.
