    I have 2 different sets of chicks coming a week apart. My question is will it be okay to combine them in one brooder???
    Thanks

    [​IMG]yes. we had to do this in the spring with a replacement order of chicks.
    all went well and they all still get along now that they are big girls.

    Yes, don't worry about them. Chicks that age are very accepting of new additions to their ranks.

    There may be an outside chance one chick might bully the newest chicks. Just be vigilant and ready to discipline the aggressive chick with a poke to the back, and that usually takes care of the problem after a few pokes.
