So they are only 2 weeks and 2 days tomorrow and i know they are definitely not ready to go in with the big guys but when do you think would be a good time to introduce them to their soon to be flock? We have this rooster who we call Grandpa, he's an old guy, who clucks at baby chicks and teaches them how to scratch and takes care of the orphan Annie's so i know at least one chicken who will accept them into the flock. My trouble is i don't know what age or size, cause these guys are having a growth spurt daily and all, except the youngest speckled Sussex, have gotten most of their feathers except on their head. This is the first from the store babes we have gotten since the our first hen already had 8 couple day old chicks, so trying to figure out when they are ready to mingle is a little troublesome to us. So if you have any advise or suggestions they would be greatly welcomed.
