I was taking care of a friends chickens while she's out of town a little while ago, and I found a few hour old silkie chick in the barn. All of her hens are in a kennel by themselves, so I don't know how she got so far away or what incubated the egg (would a duck sit on a bantam egg?) She was acting weak and listless, so I brought her inside, got her to drink a little water, and let her take a nap in my lap. After that, she perked back up. Once she stopped looking like she was about to drop dead, I gave my friend a call and asked what I should do with the chick, and she said to put it with the hens. I did, and one of the hens kept pecking her, another stepped on her, and the rest wouldn't even look at her, even though she was distress peeping nonstop. Since the hens didn't seem to have an interest in keeping her warm, I brought her home so she could spent the night under a heat lamp. Tomorrow morning I'm going to bring her back and try introducing her to the hens again. Any tips for getting them to accept her?
