Hi,
I am raising 6,

5 week old chicks and I'm wondering if they would attack a week or two week old new chick?

One new tiny chick won't do well in this bonded group, at least now. Besides, the youngster needs heat, and the older chicks don't. It would be best to have two or three chicks together, not one by itself.
Introduce them by having a screen between, and let them mingle later.
