I have the opportunity to get some Dominques and Welsummer chicks that are between 10 and 14 days old for $1 each! I've been wanting some egg layers, so I figured a couple of these would be a great start. I currently have nearly 4 week old bantam cochins and silkies in the brooder, but there is room for a few more. Since they will probably be close to the same size anyway at this point, can I just put them in together or do I need to get a seperate one? I can partition this one off if need be. Also, these new chicks were hatched in an incubator I'm guessing because the pics showed them in a brooder. Do I need to worry about disease from introducing the new ones? I don't HAVE to get these, and I certainly do not want to hurt my current babies in any way. Thanks!
