We just got some more chicks (we just can't stop) they are about 3 days. I have some 2 week olds can I mix them or should I keep separated. I do plan on keeping them separated for 2-3 days but would like to put them together

I put 4 day olds with 2 weeks, and 4 weeks old. I was nervous at first, but they all did fine. I watched them all day long, and no fighting. So you should be okay unless they are Bantams and really tiny. Then I might worry a little. Good Luck

Great timing on this question! I have 2 week old chicks and on Tuesday I am getting 10 more 1 or 2 day old chicks. I was going to keep them in separate brooder but maybe I will see how they do together after a couple days.

Thanks I really want to mix them so I don't have to have 2 lights going and one of the chicks is really mean and needs to be put in its place by the older ones. lol
