    I have 5 nine week old chicks, 3 of them are black leghorns and 2 are barred leghorns. I had 4 black leghorns but my mothers dog got a hold of it and killed it. I looked to find another couple of chicks to buy to replace the one that was killed and all that I can get is light brahma chicks. A friend of mine told me that my leghorns will not get along with the brahmas and will peck them to death. Does anyone know if this is true? And if not what would be the best way to introduce the brahma chicks to the leghorns?

    The leghorns might be a bit too old to put in some chicks, ulness they are not a few days old and are older.

    Agree with the pp. Unless the new ones are close to the same age they will most likely pick on them.

    I hope they get along at least when they get older because I already have 5 white leg horns 5 brown leg horns with 15 bantam buffs on the way.
