In the Brooder
- May 23, 2017
hello everyone! My husband and I are new to raising chickens. We decided to get 5 chicks all about the same age about a month old. My husband decided to get another chick(the same age as the others) so we could have more eggs. We took our time introducing them to the new chick. Once we felt they were all ok the flock attacked her. She was pretty timid and nervous pretty much defensive towards the others. We separated the new chick. We read that chickens don't do wel by themselves so we tried another chick from her same brood. She attacked the new one. She loves people and human attention. But hates, I mean hates other chickens being around or near her. Is this normal? And what can we do?
