    I have two small orders of chicks arriving over a an 11 day period. Would this create a problem? Any advice on how to to integrate these orders would be appreciated.

    Most are fine together; but you did not state which breeds you were mixing. Do not mix Ameraucanas and Black Jersey Giants. Ameraucanas like to duck under and Giants are proud and like to climb on top. Always prevent piling.
