    Since four of my BRs have turned out to be roos... I have four new EEs totals now for potential hens are 4 EEs and 1 BR @ 5 weeks, 8 EEs @ 1 week, and now 4 EEs @ 3 days. I've lost my chicken loving mind.

    With this age difference you should keep them in separate brooders until the younger ones are at least 3 or 4 weeks old. The older ones can easily trample the young one. I know this from first hand experience...

    I have the 4-5 week olds in a pen outside and the younger ones together inside. Everyone seems to be happy [​IMG]
