    Are they bantams or standards or a mixture? If they are all the same size, I would put them all together. Sometimes the bantams get trampled by the standards, even if they are just a week apart in age.

    I've put one hatch in with the next so they are about 3 weeks apart. It's worked out just fine so far.

    not sure what Big Fred sent me ...."a mix" is what I was told, some silky "mixes" some polish "mixes" my birds are standard, and there are a couple of really small eggs in the bator, maybe if they hatch I should separate them??? here's a pic of my "mixed eggs" that he sent.....maybe someone recognizes the eggs??
