    So how risky is it to introduce 2.5 week old baby chicks??

    I always hear that chicks are pretty safe, but these are a bit older than you might otherwise buy at the feedstore/wherever.

    I just want to know how big of a risk yall more experienced people think it would be.

    gumpsgirl added a week old (I think it was that young) chick someone gave her to hers and ended up with Coryza in her flock. She had to cull many birds from that one chick. Not safe at all, really, no matter how young the bird is.
