    Hello! I am buying 3 new chicks today to add to my 4 other older preteen chicks. The new ones will not be feathered but the ones I already own are about 7-8 weeks old. How should I introduce them all?

    More info. How old are the new ones? A lot depends on whether they need a brooder/heat, and how you intend to supply that if they do. A lot depends on how big your coop is. What is your set up, how big is your coop/run. Electricity in the coop?
