    We have five chicks coming next week (Not Bantams). But we have two week old chicks (Silkies) in the brooder now.

    Should we be concerned about integrating them together?

    Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    I recromend that you keep them separate untill they can fend for themselvs. 1 or 2 weeks should be all it takes... hope that was of some help... [​IMG]
