just posted on someone elses thread but thought id start my own... i have 9 x 9week old chicks....4 Roo's and 5 hens. last weekend they moved outside full time. the chicks have a seperate chicken house to the adults, but both house stand next to each other. the houses stand in a field over 100mx40m so plenty of free ranging space. At the moment the young chicks have a small fence round their house, so they can get outside, but the adults cant get to them, the adults have shown no intrest in the young ones at all. my adult flock consists of 8 hens and 1 Roo (who does a fantastic job of looking after his girls.) if i started letting the youngs ones out of their fenced area...is big Roo likely to attack them..especially the younger roos? also at what age should i be seperating the younger roo's from each other?
