Hi everyone

I have a 'newbie' question about adding chicks to the brooder- we had bought four of our chicks last Friday with the plan of adding another chick a week later.
However, I didn't realize that they would grow so fast- our week old chicks seem HUGE compared to how they were when they arrived and now I'm worried about adding a 2 day old chick.

We are going to pick up our little Australorp tomorrow- Is there anything I should watch out for, or anything I can do to help them all get along with each other?

I have added chicks at various times, all the way up to 3 weeks difference. The littlest will probably be bowled over a few times by the larger chicks, but it will be fine. Just spend time watching - like that would be hard to do! - to make sure the others let it get to food and water.
