I have 11 golden comets that are 26 weeks old and 2 barred rocks and a spekled sussex that are 11 weeks old. The little ones have their own sleeping place in the coop away from the others and a sectioned off run but every time I try to have them together for just a minute the big ones beat up on the small ones. I have heard to keep them seperate untill the little ones are 14 weeks old. Will it be any easier when the little ones are 14 weeks? I am new to this and would like any advise on the matter that I could get. They have had theese living arangements for 5 weeks now are they ever gonna get along? We did have 2 sussex but it got out of thesmall run and the big ones literally peaked it to death and then ate it.
