    I have a batch of chicks coming at the end of the week.. I got a batch on Monday. So their will be a week difference in their age. Can I put them in the same brooder with out them fighting ?

    It should be fine. I do that quite a bit without problems. Make sure the newest chicks are strong on their feet, but that age difference shouldn't be a problem. The older chicks will help the little guys figure out what to do, too!
