Adding new chicks to my flock

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
We started with 6 chickens last year and I am interested in adding more chicks this spring. Is it ok to mix chicks with year old chickens?

:welcome  Big chickens pick on little chickens.  Adding chicks to an established flock is never a good idea unless a hen is raising them in the flock.  Generally new birds should be almost as large as the birds in the established flock before integrating them.
