    I got a new Orpington chico after one died. But it was a least a week younger than the rest I have separate cage because I don't want her trampled by the bigger chicks. She also peeps when I leave the room. She loves to cuddle lot. Um to bust to give her this much attention. I might get another one her age but its not really allowed at my neighborhood. Don't want her to be socially awkward when I introdice her to the rest of the flock

    First off you can never pay to much attention to chickens. I would buy another though her age.

    I kept my small chicks with the big ones. They really enjoy being by the others.
