    My local feed store is getting different breeds of baby chicks every two weeks over the next month. If I want a variety of breeds in my flock is it okay to get some that are a few weeks apart in age? I am wondering about their different temperature needs. Any advice welcome. Thank you!

    I got mine at different times but that was for only 3-4 weeks total. The last 4 I kept separate because they were so little, the big ones were not as accepting, and squashed the little ones or peaked them hard.
