    Is it safe to house together peachicks of different ages or will the younger ones get pecked?

    I have 3 chicks at 1 week, 4 at 4 weeks (just off heat), 2 about 8 weeks and 3 about 14 weeks (both later sets still on wire) plus a bunch more on the way (hopefully), potentially about a week apart.

    Who can I safely mix with whom?

    My house is being taken over with baby birds, and I am not sure my DH can tollerate any more containers.

    I would try to keep those together of similar sizes. Peachicks can be bossy and pick on smaller ones. Just keep an eye on them and see how they get on.........
