    I have 4 5 week old chicks and 3 8 week old chicks. Could I put 2 new 6 month old red stars in with them or is the age difference too great?

    Thank you! I didnt think it was a good idea but wanted to hear it from more experienced people. Thank you for that link though. I'm going to print it off and put it in my chicken file.
