    I have 1 week old chicks in the basement that need to go to the chicken coop with the 3 week old chicks but the 3 week old chicks look so much bigger. I was afraid that they might be picked on or jumped on. Should i worry?

    I have some week olds in with a 3 week old. They are all ok. Just keep a close eye on them. If they week olds are getting picked on, seperate them until they are little bit bigger.

    I've done it with no problems, but I did watch carefully the first hour or so, and check in frequently. Mine acted like they'd been together all along, not sure if there's some unknown reason I was so fortunate.
