so...I had two baby silkies and a baby polish top hat in a brooder box together. the polish top hat and one of the silkies have died (probably due to coccidosis). the remaining silkie seems healthy, but lonely. s/he is too young to go outside with my other chicks (8+ weeks old). however i worry about it being alone. any suggestions? i do have one bantam that it could be with, but i am not sure how healthy the silkie really is. i dont want the bantam to get sick. thanks!
one baby silkie left

What makes you assume cocci? If it was cocci you're other birds are likely to get it and die too. You should be offering them medicated feed and treating for a disease before you think about adding any more chicks.
