Can I mix my 3 week olds with day olds?
I have done it with succes a few times now but i wait till the little ones are at least a week old, give it a try and see what happens.
I'm doing it atm. I've had to put one rowdy 3wo cockerel on 'time-out' (in a box of his own) as he keeps bullying the little'uns. The others are quite happy with the tiny ones, as the tiny ones are with the bigger ones. There's always one, isn't there!
I have 3 different ages, like I got my first batch, two weeks later my 2nd batch, two weeks later my 3rd. Due to losing one here and there and just plain old chicken math! When mine started to go outside I put the younger ones with the older ones and never had any issues with anything. My 2 orginal BO girls are really bonded though. They stay together most of the day while free ranging. BFFs
Yep you just have to make sure and sit and be referee for a bit to make sure they will not be hurt and if the older girls are OK and not whacked out by the new young kids then let em go. enjoy them.
