    Does anyone know if there are any special precautions for introducing two strange 3-4 week old baby chicks to each other? I found a black, frizzle bantam and I am considering getting a second one about her age so she has a playmate (besides myself).

    They should be fine at the age just watch them and make sure.

    I agree they should be fine well more then fine the first one should be ecstatic to have a friend.

    Thank you all for the encouragement.

    My current chickie is so attached to me and I really enjoy that, in a selfish way, but I know she needs one (at least) of her own to "chickie-play" with.
