    Well quarantine issues for one. They are coming from different farms. One batch could be sick or carriers of something that will make the other batch sick, keep a close eye on all if putting them all together.

    You will have pecking order squabbles if they all just go in together, but they are on neutral ground and will work it out faster than if one group came into the home turf of another group. Just watch that none get beat up - unlikely - but possible.

    Good luck.
