    Hi. I presently have six 5 week old chicks and just got 4 newbies (est 3 days old). Right now I have them in separate brooders and the 5 week old are going out to the coop in a day or two. Once the 4 babes are feathered - do I just put them with the others or have to slowly introduce them? These are my first chickens. Thanks.

    You should be fine but be slow about and keep an eye on the little ones just in case they don't get along with the big ones[​IMG]
