I found a guy close by that has 1 week old peachicks. Since I hatched just one, I don't want my guy to be lonely. He is 3 days old today and doing well. If I get two of these 1 week old chicks is it safe to put them in the brooder with my little one? I don't know if they can carry diseases like chickens or what. While I don't want him to be lonely, I don't want to jeopardize him in any way either. Let me know what you think guys. I am heading that way tomorrow if you guys think it's ok.

You will be fine. Young birds haven't really gotten a chance to have issues.

While you are there take a hard look at his pens, birds, and the brooder that the chicks come from. that will tell you more than anything than we can advise about his chicks.
