I have terrible luck with straight run chickens (I haven't bought any from commercial hatcheries, just individual breeders) and out of the 26 chickens I've bought, only 6 of them have been female. This last batch was 6 Lt. Brahma chicks and one turned out to be a pullet. I was able to find a home for the cockerels yesterday, but that leaves me with only the one pullet. I have been keeping all of them in a tractor during the day and a brooder at night. I have two bantams that I keep in a tractor during the day and the big coop at night. I thought since she was the size of the bantams (maybe a little bigger) that I could just put her in the tractor with them. They are about 11 weeks old and she is around 7 weeks. They pick (peck) on her relentlessly. I've been keeping the tractors next to each other so she (Maggie) won't feel so lonely, but she runs to the other side of the tractor and hollers for me to come get her. She is perched on my arm as I'm typing right now. I wasn't planning on a house chicken, but what should I do? I put her in the coop with the large breed chickens thinking they wouldn't pay any attention to her since she is smaller than they are, but it was like a free for all until I got her out. I would love to hear any suggestions.
