We have 26 four week old chicks in the garage from the hatchery. 13 Easter eggers and 13 meat birds. The meaties are 2-3 times larger than the other chicks already and go crazy at feeding time. I'm worried the EEs will be trampled. Should we separate them or will they be fine? They have most of their feathers, but it doesn't look like all yet, so we can't put them out in the coop, too cold still.
