    Okay so I got a 1 week old Ameracauna cross chick yesterday and I put her in with my 5 week old pullets last night.
    They seem to have accepted her and my Buff Orpington Ginger seems to have even taken on being mama hen.
    She let's little Peanut sleep under her tail and sticks close to her at almost all times.

    I don't know if this is normal,but it sure is a help. [​IMG]
