Help ; Introducing my 2 week old chick to days old chick?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi there!

 

One of my chick hatched to week ago but he was the only one out of 3 eggs to hatch. Since then , he has been alone in the brooder with lot of affection and stuff to do ( I gave him a mirror , some baby perch .. ).

 

Three days ago , I had 2 other little chicks that hatched. They're pretty small , but they go along just fine and they're healthy.

 

I want to put them together since I only have one brooder and other chicks are being hatched.

 

The only problem , my older one always peck at the little one when I try to introduce them. I fear he might hurt them since they're way smaller. Maybe because he was alone  for the first two week of is life , he turn out to be not very social?

 

Do any of you have any idea or suggestion ?

 

Thank you! :rolleyes:

divide the brooder with something they can see through for a few days before trying to combine them entirely
