    Hi guys, SO we have a baby chick (little). And we had to get him buy himself. She's seven weeks old. So we've been on the hunt to find her some company, and so we have we got two new chicks (seven weeks old). But she keeps attacking them, i understand the peck game (who wants to be in charge) but they dont hurt her back. (two girl chicks) . I was just woundering , how do you make them get along .... THANKS <3

    It may seem harsh, leaving the chicks work it out for themselves is for the best. The singleton may just not have had enough socialization yet to understand the two new ones are submitting. It may take a little longer then usual for chicks.

    If you want to keep them all together, you have to let them work it out on their own. You're other option is to house them separately. It may be hard to watch but it will shake out in time.

    Put some safe zones in, where a bird can get out of sight, or away for a bit.
