    Kawie Out Of The Brooder

    Apr 16, 2016
    Hi there!

    One of my chick hatched to week ago but he was the only one out of 3 eggs to hatch. Since then , he has been alone in the brooder with lot of affection and stuff to do ( I gave him a mirror , some baby perch .. ).

    Three days ago , I had 2 other little chicks that hatched. They're pretty small , but they go along just fine and they're healthy.

    I want to put them together since I only have one brooder and other chicks are being hatched.

    The only problem , my older one always peck at the little one when I try to introduce them. I fear he might hurt them since they're way smaller. Maybe because he was alone for the first two week of is life , he turn out to be not very social?

    Do any of you have any idea or suggestion ?

    Thank you! [​IMG]

    divide the brooder with something they can see through for a few days before trying to combine them entirely
