    If they are the same age it should be fine.

    However, it is recommended that you quarantine chickens coming from different places for around 4 wks to make sure that they are all healthy before putting them together.

    I DIDNT EVEN THINK ABOUT QUARANTINE THANK YOU FOR THAT I HAVE 1 SMALLER BROODER IN THE HOUSE I WAS GOING TO USE FOR THE FIRST COUPLE OF WEEKS AND THEN SWITCH TO A LARGER ONE IN THE GARAGE SO MAYBE I WILL USE THEM BOTH AT THE SAME TIME THANKS.
