Can I put newborn chicks from the incubator in with a mom and 2 week old chicks?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Has anyone been successful doing this? What was the age difference?

Stephanie in VA  3 kids, 2 dogs, 3 cats, and 14 chickens- hens: 2 leghorns, 2 golden comets,         2 australorps, 2 barred rocks, 1 NH Red, 1 LF buff brahma. Roosters: LF light brahma, 2 bantam cochins (1 black/multi colored frizzle, and one buff/red colored) blue orpington. My neighbors RIR rooster has recently moved in. I guess he is staying too

I wouldn't risk it - the mom will see them as intruders and most likely injure or kill them.

Should I add supplemental heat?
