I have 11 chicks 3-4 weeks old. I got 2 banty chicks today less than 1 week old. I was told that the age difference should be ok. But the 3-4 wk old bantam cochin started pecking one new banty chick a lot. So I removed the new banty chicks to a tote seperate. How long do I need to seperate them?:/

Im no expert but I think that age difference is too much for them to be in the same brooder ever....especially because the new chicks are bantys..they will always be smaller. And get picked on.
