I've got about a 4 week old Silkie in the brooder with 1 newly hatched chick (3 days). (I did a semi dry hatch with lower temp experiment on 6 eggs and only 1 hatched, won't be doing that again). Anyways, the silkie does not like to be handled at all, even though I hold him/her everyday. It will peck at me when I'm trying to grab it. Today EE chick began pecking at me as well. Not sure if this is influenced by the older chick, or just because it's getting older. Can the older one influence the younger that way? I've got another 17 (hopefully) hatching next week and need to separate the older chick from them if it will, as well as the one I have already.
