In the Brooder
- Aug 24, 2020
This is probably going to sound really silly, but I have 4 bantams that are 2 months old, and seem to all get along really well. we decided to add 2 well-laying standards, thinking we might as well get some good and plentiful eggs out all this. They are only a week old so will be in the brooder for awhile, but I’m feeling guilty that I’m going to disrupt the good thing the originals have going. I don’t want to mess up their whole dynamic or stress any of them out. Trying to justify it by telling myself that chickens like to be with groups and they are young enough to make an easy adjustment? Am I lying to myself or is this true? Has everyone eventually settled newbies in well? thank you in advance for comments. This probably seems like a silly topic but hoping to ease my mind.
