I've got three 1 1/2 week old Polish chicks. I want to get some banties tomorrow, but I'm afraid the Polish chicks will hurt my newbies. Should I wait or use another brooder?

Just my opinion, but I would supervise them and put them together. Polish are so mild, and 1.5 weeks isn't that big of a spread, I would think your chances for success would be high.

I had good success combining 2 week old bantams with my newly hatched standard chicks. Just makes sure the new ones are eating and drinking well
