I have chicks that hatched on 10/20 (so now about 9 days old) and I have chicks hatching Nov 1st. Can I mix them or should I do separate brooders until they go outside in the coop?

I know the size difference can be concerning.

I've mixed what I believe were 1 day and 1 week old chicks, they were both rather fine together. Breeds were Lavender Orpington and Brahma respectively.

I have raised chicks of different ages together. Even two weeks apart. Never had a problem. Just keep an eye on them at first and separate them if they are picking on each other
