Hey everyone!! I have 40 hens and roos that are around 5 months old and I have 5 chicks that are 10 weeks old. I wanted to introduce the babies to the big ones before winter and get them used to the coop so I built a little cage thing in the coop that only they can fit in through. But every time they try to come out of their cage, the big ones all go after them. I know about the pecking order, but they are so tine compared to the big ones, I am even afraid they could harm them by stepping on them. I also had a bad experience with my favorite roo Baldie, he was attacked when he little and they pecked a bunch of his feathers off, end even gave him big cuts. I seperated him and now he is far from bald and very healthy. Will my babies be okay if they wander out of their little cage thing? I left an opening so thye could out if htey want.
