    Now that this second 4 eggs are hatching, can I put them with the week old chicks?[​IMG]

    Nope. It will probably be ok to combine the groups after a few days when the new hatchlings have their legs under them (I've done it lots of times) but watch out for bullies and make sure the older batch doesn't hog the heat lamp and feed/water.

    Thanks for taking time to answer. I will put a divider in my little warm house. One is out...one has pipped the small end of the egg and the other 2 are just laying ther. Thanks again...Patsy
