In the Brooder
- May 16, 2012
I have 3 chicks that are 5 and 6 days old. I have just hatched 11 more and still hatching. I tried to put the oldest new chick in with the 3 week old chicks. One promptly flocked the younger one and I put him back in the bator (he was only 12 hours). How do I go about introducing the new chicks to the week old ones? Should I put more of the new ones in at one time? I have 8 that are ready to go in the brooder because they are 24 hours old. I do not have the means to operate 2 brooder boxes.
