    This weekend, I should be getting 10 Delaware chicks. Currently, i have 2 2 week old RIR x BO crosses in the brooder. The delawares come from a local breeder, so I'll be picking them up. They will be 1-5 days old... Should I wait a week before the merger?? I don't know what to do or when... [​IMG] Help me!!

    If you can, put them so that there is wire between the groups. Even something like a baking rack in the brooder. Let them see each other for like a week then let them mingle.
