Can I get more chick??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi! We have 3 chicks that are 3 weeks old. We got them from a friend whose son hatched in class. We would like to get a couple more. Our local feed store has some that are 2 weeks. Is it possible to safely integrate them together with the week difference??

You have to arrange your brooder so that there is enough warmth for your youngest chick while ensuring there is a cool zone (corner away from the lamp) for your older chicks.

 

I added a younger chick and she had no problems fitting right in with 5 older ones, all around 3 - 5 weeks (I'm suspicious of the dates I was given).
