    I have 4 Welsummer pullets that are getting pretty big and are a little too rough with some of my younger chicks. At what age are pullets big enough to introduce to the general public? They are about 3 months old....

    I started way before 3 months. This late they will be chased but probably not hurt. Try it.

    We put ours out with the flock at two months. If they're getting pecked too bad try separating into a separate, nearby enclosure first to give the others time to get used to them.
