It's not likely a 2 week old chick could/would kill a mouse.  Mice are dirty animals and often carry disease, parasites, etc.  I would be diligent in trying to trap and kill the mouse/mice.  There are plenty of chicken/pet safe traps available commercially and many DIY trap instructions available on the web.
