Can they be together. I am concerned since I know bigger ones will pick on little ones sometimes. My two 3-week-olds are not pickers at all, very docile SLWs. The 2-week-old SS chicks pick a bit at the bigger ones fluff but never serious picking. I've heard you can do a 2 week split safely usually. It's just I have 18 eggs ready to hatch in the bator and these 8 older chicks occupying the house brooder. It's too chilly and damp to kick the chicks out to the garage brooder just yet and I'd rather not have to build a second house brooder if possible. So, what is the verdict? Anyone think it will be OK?
