    Hi and [​IMG] It shouldn't be a problem combining the two groups. To be extra careful, you might want to keep your cochin pullets separate for a day or two, especially if they were shipped. This would give them time to acclimate and get settled. One weeks difference in age isn't a problem. Good luck and share pictures with us! [​IMG]

    Thank you so much! You put my mind at ease thought I'd have to build another brood (will have to make my current 1 bigger)! I love my chickies! [​IMG]
