Different aged chicks sharing a brooder?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have some 1 1/2 to 2 week old bantams that I want to house with 2 day old silkies. Can this work? There seems to be a bit of pecking but they are also huddling together. Also they are all the same size.

Should be able to work, just keep an eye on them.

definitely watching them close. For the most part they seem to be huddling together well with just a few pecks here and there. smile.png
