Okay, I have 1barred rock, 1 spotted Sussex, 1 black copper maron, 1 easter egg, that are going on five months all but the rock who is six months. Now I have eight chicks who were born 44 days ago, 2 rhode Island res, 3light brahmas, 2 Australorps and 1 Australorp roo. this is the only roo I have. I am trying to introduce the chicks to their elders but it almost became bloody. I have had them in the pen while their elders stand on the outside watching the chicks off and on for the past week and they seemed not to care much about the chicks, they were just there and it seemed to not bother the elders much. Today I introduced the all in the pen and it went down hill from there. The rock pecked anything that moved, the sussex went after the brahmas, the maron went after the australorp, and the easter egger went after the rhode Island reds. It seemed like a well coordinated attack, like they were making plans while they watched them from the other side of the fence. Not sure what to do next, any ideas?
