    I have some that are two weeks old with some that are one week old and I will be adding some others that just hatched to them once they are able to get around good.
    I wait a few days till the newly hatched ones are getting around well. I havent had any problems and mine are both standard and bantams.

    I recently placed two 5 day old chickens with five 2 week old chickens. No problems.
