Last night, we finally let Pumpkin, a buff bantam/cochin pullet, and Raven, a black bantam/EE pullet, sleep in the coop with the rest of the flock! They did really well I think; it was pretty warm last night, so they were kept warm. And in the morning, they were walking around with the rest of the small flock(which is 2 BO pullets and a Cochin rooster).

They are ready to be on their own then, I guess.
They get along well with the two BO pullets, but once and a while the rooster gets rough. But not too rough.
No more brooder box!
We will see how they do without being inside the house now.

Quote:Raven is about 8 or more months now. And Pumpkin is about 6 or more months. They were suppose to be introduced to the rest of the flock earlier, but because they are so small and because of cold weather, we decided to wait until it warmed up. And we worried that they would be picked on because of how small they are.
Amazing to think that they should be laying soon and they just left the brooder box!
