Can I move different age chukars, 6week and 4week old, From their different cages into one new cage, large flight pen, without them fighting?

You can but I'd keep a VERY close eye on them. Is it completely dark in the room you have them in? We used to do that all the time but there wasn't a stitch of light in that building.

I put the 4 week birds into the cage with the 6 week birds. They are in total darkness. If they don't kill each other, after a week I will move them to the flight pen. The next week I moved them to the flight pen and they did just fine.
