thanks to google (lol the company loves me so much they let me visit them in cambridge. Go google) i discovered a hatchery still hatching the breeds of my desire. going to order 10 chicks (3 white leghorn, 3 black australorp, 2 buff silkie, 2 red frizzle cochin) and i was wondering what is the easiest way to integrate them. I have a Lil' Brooder for the 0-2 week olds and the Big Brooder for the 2-7 week old. I dont know when the 10 chicks will arrive, assuming 1 week. I will have my big chicks collide with the little chicks (in the coop). This is sooner than I think and think that in order for them to become loving in the coop they may need to integrate in the brooder sometime. No damage done if lil' chicks go into big brooder, but i was wondering if any if you have methods for very young chicks (0-1 week) integrating with older ones (5-6 weeks). THANKS SO MUCH! just soo sad that none of my 9 lakenvelders hatched. making up for it with some chicks. this is such a helpful forum.
