We've had backyard chickens for about 12 or 13 years, but we've come across a new situation -- and not sure how to handle it. We mail ordered chicks (15 plus two exotics), which arrived today AND our bantam silkie hatched two chicks about five days ago. Do we take the bantam chicks and put with our new chicks? Or do we put all the new chicks with the mama and two bantams?
