    Hi! I'm new to chickens and am wondering if it is ok to get my chicks from two different stores. Is it ok if they are ten days apart? PLEASE HELP!!!!

    I was hoping someone had answered by now since I'm wondering the same thing...

    I've had success with introducing peeps to pullets and having them all get along, but it was a long process.

    Have fun with your chicks. We have one on the back porch now with plans to accumulate a few more over the weekend...

    There isn't a problem with two different stores and the chicks are close enough in age that I would not be worried at all.

    The only worry would be pecking, which if you see major pecking that will be the clue to separate them
