    I have standard chicks coming the first week of April from Murray McMurray. I ordered 3 bantams and 1 standard chick from mypetchicken.com, but that order isn't due to arrive until the first week of May. I ordered the bantams through them because they were they only ones I could find that will sex bantams. My question is, can I put them in with the other chicks that I will have already had a month? And if not the bantams, could I put in the standard since they will be housed together when they are old enough to be put in their coop outside?

    You can put them in together however you should let the youngest batch get big enouph that they don't get stomped around on. I would wait a few weeks.
