    I currently have two brooder boxes going. One box has chicks that are approaching four weeks old. The other box has chicks that are anywhere from 10 days to 3 days old. My concern is that I am getting some Blue Marans this weekend if they hatch. My concern is that Im gonna run out of room in the brooder when they begin to really grow, so what ages can I mix together to create more room?
