Hey guys. My flock has all grown up, and they've moved to a safe spot outside in a coop with a run. Ill have to post pictures at some point. Anyways, one of my chickens,(I call her Little Honey) is really really small compared to my other chicks. they're not fully grown yet of course, so I figured little honey isn't getting enough to eat or maybe she was the last one to hatch and she just needs to catch up. There is a possibility that she's getting bullied out of eating by the other chicks, though. I see the bigger ones chasing her around and pecking at her. She'll have to run and hide but I"m not sure if she's completely safe. And to only make me worry more, she's completely imprinted on me.
When I went down to feed everyone this morning, she was running around trying to get to me from inside the coop. I got inside and she completely flopped down on my lap and went onto her side and stuck her legs out. Thats when I was pretty sure that she felt safe with me.
So yeah basically I want to move little honey inside the house for a little while and keep track of her. She'd have her own cage, and she'd be getting everything she needs and more. But whats worrying me about that is what about when she gets big enough and I can move her back into the coop with her flock, are they still going to bully her? Will she be big enough to defend herself, and set the pecking order straight? Will they reject her? I'm pretty clueless.
