I just got chicks for the first time last weekend. We got 2 4 week old chicks. Found one of them dead in the brooder box a few days later - not sure what happened, there was no aggressive behavior between the two of them, they were both eating and drinking, the temperature was fine.
We are getting another one or two chicks this weekend so the one isn't alone. However, the closest I can find in age is 2 weeks younger. Is it going to be very difficult introducing them? Or will the older chick be fine since she seems desperate for company right now?
