Darn, I am going to run out and get two more I guess. Mine are like 5 weeks old now. I wanted to wait a few weeks. Will my guys attack the new ones? I have an a Buff Orpington and a Wyandotte. Will anyone local have some I could buy? Looking for a calm gentle one for a pet and eggs.
Integrating young chicks usually goes really well as long as they are about the same age or size. If those 2 chicks are valuable or your kids are super attached you really should quarantine any new birds before introducing them to the flock. Standard quarantine is 30 days....more if you see any questionable behavior. Yes, it is a pain....but if you don't quarantine you run the risk of loosing everyone.
Congress is about 2 and a half hours from you. But if you ever feel like a drive out of the city, you are welcome to some chicks. Right now I have 13 that will be a week old this weekend, 14 that are a month old and 11 that are 8 weeks or so. Easter Eggers, Ameraucanas, Plymouth Rocks and Barn yard mutts.
