I have a silkie chick that is about 2 months old. It is the only chick i have left from the hatching and it is still with the mother. However the mother has started to lay eggs again and i was wondering if i can introduce them to my flock. right now i have a mixed flock but am thinking about separating my silkies into their own pen. can i introduce the mother and the chick? Will she still protect the chick still?
