How long do you keep your chicks separated when combining flocks? I recently (four weeks ago) bought some one week old Dominiques, two pullets and a roo (the roo was supposed to be a girl). Today, I bought some two week old Barred Rocks, two of them. I have them separated at the moment but the brooders are in the same room. I swear my Dominiques are chirping to the Barred Rocks, which in turn is making the Rocks chirp ever so loudly. I feel like they want to "meet" each other, sounds silly. How long should I wait before introducing them, or how long have y'all waited? I'm sure not everyone goes by the book, so what is it? Thanks in advance!
