    Ok, so I am getting 25 Rhode island Red chicks today, but we are getting one Buff Orpington from a local feed store. I was wondering if i could put the one chick in with the others? Or would they spread sicknesses? The one would not be to happy by itself would it? Thanks for you answers! :)

    yes definitely put them together and no i don't think they will spread sicknesses because if you got your buff at a local farm... no they will not be sick.


    Hope this helps [​IMG]

    If they are the same age or within a week they should be fine.
    Does the feed store order from a hatchery?

    Might better to get 2-3 Buffs.
