Can I add a different chick to the ones I have?


My three chicks are about 8 months old and laying and I would like to have another kind of chicken. I know I would probably need to keep a fence between them to start but should I make sure I get an older chick or does that matter?

    Yes, I thought I'd put a fence between them awhile, although I don't really free range mine they have lots of running room and I could do the same for new ones. Thanks billy.

    Maybe I will do as billy says & get two that know each other; should help and I was going to fence them separately but I didn't know how much it may upset some of them even with a fence if they see each other. My girls squabble some; rarely tho.
