We have 6, 2-3 week old Golden SexLink chicks. We want to go get a few more chicks today at TSC that should be 1 week to a few days old. Will that age gap be an issue? And do I avoid any breeds to join them with?

Thank you.

Hi, welcome to BYC! :frow

It shouldn't be an issue as long as no one gets trampled. The pecking order isn't strong yet at this age. I just integrated 2 week olds with 4 week olds. Making sure the heat source is varied enough to serve both groups is key.

Good luck! :wee
