    Can they go in the same incubator or do they need seperate ones?

    Same incubator and same brooder.

    They do have different nutritional needs - you'll have to feed the chickens according to the higher protein feed needs of the peababies.

    For my peababies, I feed kitten chow chopped to a crumble size in the blender mixed with chick starter 24%. The silkie chicks in the brooder with them don't seem to be minding that diet.
