I have two, 2 weeks old BR's, and I am getting 6 more, standard chicks this week. BO's and BA's. I am new to this so I want to do the best I can for my chicks. My question is should I put them all together in a new BIG brooder, or keep them separate for a week or so until the new babies are settled from being shipped and eating well? Is it better to introduce them as young as possible? Or wait until they are 3 weeks and one week old? I have had a few suggestions already but I am still uncertain about this situation. Any ideas would be great.
