Hey all, brought home a Polish chick and a silkie chick (couple days old) to our brood of four silkies at four weeks of age. The 4 older ones were much more rough to the Polish, and are much more accepting to the Silkie. They grab at the Polish's feet, when they do that I give them a lil bop on the head and they usually stop, at least for a while. They let the Silkie burrow under them for warmth and hang out by the food, but still give a peck to remind him of his place. The Polish is on the other side of the brooder. Thoughts?
