    Well we came back from the poultry show. Went down to get bantam cochins pullets came back with two little 1 week old buff cochin chicks
    We still have standard eggs set to hatch Nov 1st, Can I put the 1 weeks old chicks together with the ones we are hatching? the cochins are bantams (the older ones) and the new ones are standard chanteclers

    Those are just precious. [​IMG]
    I've read on hear that if they grow up together maybe they would be okay. Don't take my word on that though, you need a more experienced chicken lover.

    So cute - and already playing with legos - what smart chicks! [​IMG]

    I can tell you must have kids - we use what is laying around, don't we! Good idea though, the legos will keep the chicks out of the waterer.

    Yeah, once the day olds can stand and are perky, you can put them together, I put my chicks together with up to a 3 week difference. I make sure the youngest can stand and can find food first though.
