Chicken Flock Integration - Part 3 | Blogs
We've done it! The chicken family is now fully integrated with the laying flock! The other night we moved their little coop over near the larger coop and then sort of "encouraged" them to move over to the bigger one! They did this with a little bit of protesting but once they were safe inside the bigger coop I closed it up and removed the smaller coop entirely. I then imediately turned off the light in the big coop so the laying hens couldn't see the chicks. The next morning all the chickens came out of the coop without issue and were well behaved. The next night the chicks and mom went right into the larger coop, no questions asked! Yahoo! We've done it!
