    Welcome to BYC please keep watch that the older chicks do not bully the youngest (EE)/ Older chicks don't require the high temps. in a brooder that the younger ones do. If you brooder is large enough the older chicks can migrate to the cooler side.

    I have them separated for now. We originally had 3 the same age but one of them passed away at about a week and a half. So we ended up getting another one. She is in her own brooder next to these 2. We pull them all out to play together and they do fine but I not gonna put them together until the baby gets bigger
