    Hi all, I have 4 chicks that are about to turn 2 weeks old. I wanted to add 4 more of a different breed that my local feed store just had shipped in - they are about a day or so old. Is it okay to combine the 4 newborns with my four 2-wk old chicks?

    Hey, if they start peking them, get them out of there, I can't guarantee that they will be fine.

    Hope this helped!
