    Want to add 2 more chicks to the coop and was told that later additions may be rejected by the original group of 3. I want to buy 2 more so they have eachother in the event the 2 are rejected by the original group of 3.

    Thanks for any feedback IN ADVANCE,

    Should be OK, although there may be a bit of skirmishing while they sort out the pecking order. But it should all settle down OK. Best thing is to introduce the new ones into the coop at night, so that they're already there when the original ones wake up.
