I have 3-day old and 3-week old chicks. When can I introduce them to each other?
The sooner you introduce them the easier it will be. Do it now.
I second that, the sooner the better, but I do usually wait until the newly hatched chicks aren't wobbly and I watch closely to make sure there aren't any bullies.
Edit: I just re-read your question and realized you said 3-day-old not 1-day-old. They're likely just fine and no longer wobbly, just monitor them for a bit.
What does your brooder look like?
How many of each age group?
I'd split brooder with mesh wall in case of trouble.
Have had it go well.... and disastrously.
Thanks. Started well but I noticed the 5 bigger ones hogging all the heat and shooing the 3 little ones away. I’ll have to figure out something else. They’re back apart.
