ok, so I moved my 4 adult hens to the new coop on Sunday - after dark (cuz that's the only way I can catch one of them . On Monday afternoon, I moved my 8 - 8 week old chicks out as well. They are in the same coop - with a wire "fence" between them. And they share a run - still with a wire fence between them. I find it interesting that the big girls haven't really paid much attention to the little ones. I sprinkle scratch close to the fence on both sides, to try to bring them closer to one another... How long do I do this? When it comes time for them to meet, should I remove the outside wire fence and leave the one inside the coop there for a while? Just thinking maybe it would give them a place to run to in case they get too picked on..? OR is it best to just take all the temp wire down to let them "have at it"? How long will it take tyhem to establish their new pecking order?? thx!!
