    So cute . I put the new baby's in with week old chicks ( I'm keeping a eye on them ,they will be moved ) the little want to be under the older ones so they are trying to get away.

    Cuties :) As long as the week old chicks don't pick on the new ones that should be fine. I mixed new ones with two week old once. I removed the two week old chicks, then put in the newbies, then re-added the older ones. Not one issue. They all grew up to be best buds.
