    I recently had a single chick hatch out and needed flock mates. I could only find week old chicks for him and it worked out great. They are all great friends.

    Are they getting along okay? If so, it will work.

    As long as the older one doesn’t take to bullying the younger, and they have space (your brooder picture shows space) and food/water, they’ll get along. Keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t try to fight or anything.

    And the big comb looks like a cockerel, especially at just five weeks.

    I agree, it does look like a little cockerel with that comb.
