    This chick hatched around 4pm lastnight, I am planning to move it to the brooder around 8 or 9 tonight when I get home.... I have 3 ~2week old bantam chicks in the brooder already, any tips on the integration?

    Should I put up chicken wire to block this new chick off for one day and let everyone get used to eachother? Or just put it in with the others and see how things go???? Any tips, ideas, etc. would be GREATLY appreciated!! This is my first time hatching my own chicks...!
