I have three chicks about 10-12 weeks old (I need to look at my receipt when I bought them for the exact date). I'm currently keeping them in a dog crate in the garage, and my other two chickens (one hen and one rooster, I lost 2 hens to the heat this summer) have hung out next to the dog crate and been around the chicks. They don't seem to show any agression to the younger ones. The chicks appear to have lost all their baby feathers at this point and they are about 1/3 the size of the adults. I let my adults free range during the day. When is it ok to let my young ones free range with them? When should I allow them to go up in the coop at night instead of their dog kennel? If I let them out to free range, will they naturally want to go back to the dog kennel in the garage as the adults do to their coop? This is my first time raising young chicks, so I'm learning as I go. Thanks!
