Last week the DH and I were discussing getting more chicks, and somehow the topic went to putting different breeds of babies together. I guess a friend of the family had some 'day olds' that he put in the brooder, 1/2 of them were white ones, and the other half were black ones....PLEASE DO NOT THINK THIS IS A RACIAL ISSUE.....and an old farmer came by to look in on the chicks. Evidently he told the guy that eventually, the chicks will seperate themselves, and that the black ones would dominate and eventually kill the white ones. Well.... One day the guy went to feed the chicks and lo and behold it was true, they had seperated to each side of the brooder. A week later he went in to find the white ones had been pecked to death in the night. This is 3rd hand information, so I'm not sure of the accuracy...has anyone heard of babies of different breeds being raised together then seperating like this?
