So today my runty little mottled cochin chick passed away. We’d been fighting pasty butt since I brought it home from Tractor Supply and I hoped it would improve but no such luck. All the other chicks are healthy and thriving and no pasty butt in sight. My problem now is that i know chickens can be particular about chicken breed dynamics. Currently i have four silkie chicks, the two mottled cochin bantams, and one polish crested chick. I have more polish crested chicks coming in a few weeks from Ideal, and i might pick up a few more silkies once i figure out gender on my current silkie chicks, but my current predicament is my only having two mottled cochins. I’m worried they’ll be picked on as they get older. Should i go ahead and order more mottled cochins now? Am I over thinking it and they’ll actually be ok? I hate that i’ve lost my little chick I don’t want to lose any others.
