    We have 6 Rhode Island reds at about 2 weeks old. We have an order of 15 Rhode Island reds coming on Thursday which will be a few days old? I'm thinking that it would be wise to separate the groups for a few weeks than introduce both groups when the little ones are older? I'm I wrong? Or should I just put them all together in the beggening?
    Thanks for the help.

    Hi and [​IMG]! I would probably separate them to begin with until they all get a bit older.

    Thanks For the advice and the warm welcome. we are newbies at this but we have done a lot of research. But getting advice from other pros is way better than reading articles.

    I think they would be fine if you just try it out and see what happens :) I have two chickens and one of them is two weeks you get than the other and they get along really well.! They cry for each other.!
