    I have a flock of 6 six week old bantams, 1 six month old rooster and three twelve week old hens...I have had one of the baby bantams in the house because she wasnt well..I put her in the coop run with the other chicks and she is terrified of the other chicks..if they move she freaks out which excites the whole flock and it goes down hill from there..do I need to bring her back in the house with another chick and let them buddy up and then try again? Thank you

    Sounds like a good plan. Maybe 2-3 other chicks so that when they move back in it isn't 2 vs. the rest.

    How long was she in the house?

    She has been in for six weeks and the other five went out like two-three weeks ago
