About a month ago 14 newborn chicks arrived in the mail andhave been prospering in a former water trough set up in the kitchen. Our plans had been to move the chicks to thecoop immediately upon completion of their coop, which has taken longer to buildthan expected but hopefully will be completed today. Yesterday we got a call that someone in townhas decided to get rid of all of her chickens and do we want them. No idea yet how many chickens she has but webuilt a pretty big coop with 8 nesting boxes so we can handle quite a fewchickens. Okay, here is myquestion. Should we put the adults andbabies in the coop together at the same time so they all get accustomed totheir new surroundings together or is that a bad idea? If not at the same time, then how do we dothis? Once everyone knows where home is,they will be free-range chickens.
