and oh they are so cute!!!! 2 EEs and 2 BRS

I thought I was going to be able to put them in with the 2 week old silkies but they have been getting rowdy lately. Once I saw those widdle ones there was no way they could hold their own in there. Im going to give them a week or so to get their bearings and then introduce them..

Everyone is drinking, eating and no pasty butt so far

Congrats. I just put my 4 week olds in with the 6 week olds. The older ones are quite larger still and I thought there might be problems since some are roos and are doing the chest bumping thing to each other and stuff but I haven't seen any of them misbehaving. The big ones pretty much act like the others are part of the flock even the little cocky rooster who tries to start stuff with the older roos lol.

I thought the sooner the better but not after I got them home and realized how big the silkies had gotten, they seemed so little before the new ones came LOL
