Constantly pecking at the others and wont stop.
Actually 5 silkies and 1 cochin bantam... Not 6 silkies

My 4 or 5 day old chicks can sometimes pick at each other, do they have enough space? They could be doing it because of boredom. Is your heat lamp (do you have a lamp or some other type of heater)? If they do have a lamp is it clear or red? Red could calm them down, but 250 watt red bulbs can get very hot (be careful!) Try to distract them, give them some treats (don't over do it) For a distraction for my picking chicks i gave them some worms or oats.
Is your brooder big enough to separate the mean chick from the others with some wire? if so, just give it some heat, food, and water and make sure it can SEE the others just not peck them. You can probably actually even let it use the same heat lamp. it will probably out grow the 'pecking thing' eventually.
