Long story but I have a 3 wk old single baby chick. I have it in the house in a cage with a heatlamp and it seems very lonely. we have lots of chickens outside including 2 silkie hens that have 6 chicks that are 7 wks old that they hatched and raised (together). Do you think the silkies would accept this chick too at this point? what can we do to keep this chick happy while it is by itself? How do we go about introducing it to the rest of the flock? Our chickens are several generations of mixed phoenix, silkie, barred rock, and orpington, if that makes a difference. thanks in advance for any advice! Right now I am holding the baby chick and it likes to be under my hair. It is so loud when it is in the cage alone and frantically running back and forth! It had a sibling that died last night so now it is all by itself. Poor thing!
