    I had two eggs hatch last week, and one this week. The older guys run head first into the younger one knocking him over. They also try and grab his beak or rear tail feathers. Is there anyway to get them used to each other? I don't want to have like five brooders in my house.

    Also what age do you recommend they can safely stay outside 24/7. Thanks!

    Well they seemed to have calmed down alot. They actually all slept together last night, so guess they just had to settle who was in charge...lol.
