    My oldest wants to replace the chicks we lost last week. Feed store has a new batch that are almost the same age as the ones we have now give or take a day or two, so about 10 days old.

    What's the best way to bring in 2 new gals to the group?

    At this age you just need to slip them into the crowd and they might get a peck on their heads in "greeting", but that's all the mayhem you should expect.
