Last year I raised 6 month old chicks without any issues. This year, I got two silkies along with 4 other chicks coming in three weeks. Their names are Gizmo and Frodo. Frodo is perfectly content and does normal baby chicken activities - such as sleep. Gizmo however, whenever I leave her sight she peeps the "distress peep" and tries to jump out of their enclosure. Does anyone have experience with this issue who would be able to help me?
Info about the brooder:
They have plenty of food and water
They're on paper towels on top of pine shavings in a metal cage surrounded by cardboard so they can't squeeze out between the cracks
There is a red bulb and the thermometer says "93", plus the other chick is comfortable under the light.
There is plenty of space for Gizmo to go in case she gets too hot, but she just continues to try and jump out.
I have tried putting a stuffie in their for them to have company but they were more scared of it than anything.
