    I just introduced the exact same age difference and had no trouble at all. It is just funny how much of a size difference a few days makes in chickens!

    I went ahead and put her in, and there was no problem!! She was very happy to see other chicks ... And yes... she is so much smaller than the others!

    I see you live in Maine... I use to live in Brunswick Maine. Loved it there! Do your chickens have an new England accent? :)

    Ayuh. ;-) Brunswick is beautiful!

    So glad the little chick was accepted!
