    this will be the case in four weeks. I don't know if I should make another brooder or can I keep them in thesame one? I need help.

    I'd definitely say to keep them separate. Although it's only a three week difference, those older chicks will bully the younger ones, and will give you nothing but trouble. [​IMG]

    Depending on how big of a brooder you have, you could always put a divider in there somewhere.

    Hope this helps!
