    I have 30 1.25 y/o white leghorns that came from a poultry farm, 2 barred rock hens that are 11 weeks old, and 5 8-9 week old red jungle fowl. When can I take the jungle fowl out of the brooder and put them with the rest of the flock? The jungle fowl are quite small
    compared to the barred rocks.

    As long as your night time temps are above 55*f then none of them need a heat light/brooder any more. I think I would wait till they are at least half the size of the leghorns before just turning them out with them. You could put them in a cage in the main pen till they get use to each other.
