I hatched two d'Uccle eggs on October 19th, just two days ago. Fearing something may happen to one of them leaving the other alone, I quickly placed an order of "day-old" chicks from Stromberg's hatchery. I've never ordered from a hatchery before, and when chicks were listed as "available," I assumed they would literally be sent the day I ordered, or possibly the day after. Stupid mistake! I just found out my 25-chick order of "day-olds" will be shipped on October 26th, so I'm guessing these chicks will have been hatched the 25th. I will have two chicks that will be ten days old, and receiving 25 chicks that will be just three days old. Any advice? Will I be able to mix them right away in the brooder, or should I look into a second brooding area until they are maybe 2 weeks and 3 weeks old? I don't want anyone to get picked on, but since I'll be mixing two olders in with 25 youngers, I'm not even sure if it would make a difference. (Strength in numbers, etc.) Thank you! PS: Minus the worry, I'm so excited!
