Do they have a mama hen ? Or are you raising them by hand ? If they free range, the mama hen will introduce them to the flock when the time is right. If you are planning on putting the chicks with the rest of the flock without a mama hen, probably not until they are completely feathered out and able to run for cover really fast ! Since every chicken in the flock will probably want to peck them "just to keep them in line".
