I have 4 six-week BA's, but three are roos, so I have to get rid of them
I am planning to get 2-3 new chicks to keep my one pullet company. I am wanting to find some as close to the same age as possible, but if I can't find any other 6 week olds, is it better to get new chicks that are a little older or a little younger than my pullet?

I've done okay when they are within a few weeks of each other. I think someone in another post suggested putting them where they can see each other for awhile (with wire fencing keeping them apart), until they've gotten used to each other a bit and then the transition might be a little smoother.
