    ok so i have a lone chickie from a failed incubation attempt (mostly infertile eggs) well she is 5 and a half weeks old now, today my brother is going to tractor supply store so would it be OK to get more chickies to brood with my solo, they look to be about a week old they have some wing feathers. So is this an ok age gap if there are multiple younger chicks or am I better off keeping solo, solo?
