Ok, here's the situation. I just ordered 10 buff cochins and 15 silver leghorns from a hatchery. we will be getting them on the 26th of this month. I want to incubate some of by buff orpington eggs. I calculated it out to where the new hatches would be about 23-24 days younger than the others. How dangerous is it for put them in the same brooder? I have a separate brooder, but i'd only be able to keep the younest ones in it for a week or two. wahy should i do?
