    I recently had to separate one of my 4 week old buff orpington chicks from the rest of the chicks because she was pecked very badly in the vent, and she needs to heal. She has not been eating very much, and has lost some weight. I have heard that a chick cannot survive very well alone, but I am afraid to add another chick to her healing area because I don't want her to get pecked while she's healing. What should I do to get her to eat?
