    How long does it usually take for 4 week olds and 5 week old chicks to get used to each other? Today I put 2 4 week olds in with my 4 5 week olds. They don't fight, but the separate themselves. I was just wondering how long it usually takes before the all will mix?

    sometimes it will take a day sometimes they will never mix, I have 3 week olds in with 10 week olds and they do great were mixed in on the second day together, i've seen where some have never mixed with flock mates though.
