    I have 3 two week old Cornish x and just got 27 more day olds can I put the day olds in the same brooder as the two week olds?

    I think you could, esp if there's plenty of room. My experience with CX are they're too busy eating to worry about picking on each other much!

    What are you feeding the cornish cross chicks? If it is broiler starter than you may not want to put them together. If it is chick starter they should be fine together.
