Hello, I'm Tim and I'm new to byc's. I've wanted to get some for years, just never pulled the trigger. Last month, I decided to get some for my son (and me) for his 6th birthday. The previous few months, we had been hitting the local feed / stock shops and he's been playing with the chicks and constantly asking for some. Then, after a few serendipitous events that gave the green light, I found / bought 2 Black Australorps and 2 Speckled Sussex (exactly what I had been looking for), all about 16 weeks old (at the time). We've had em for about 5 weeks now, and they've been a blast. I created this account because I had a question about integrating new (older) chickens into the flock. From what I've read (which is predominately about younger chicks into older flocks), I assume the process is the same (quarantine, segregate, etc), but I just wanted to get some feedback on it. Thanks.
