    Can chicks about a month apart be safely raised together in a brooder. I'll have three hatches a bout a month apart. Will the month old chicks have any issues with newbies or does that only happen with adults?

    make them meet slowly if i was you, i had a 3, 6 week chicks which when went outside and 2 year old hens, i started them in a small run so that they can see each other though wire mesh. so i think it could be the same for chicks. so make them meet slowly and you will be fine[​IMG]
