Ok, so several weeks ago we got five free bantams from tractor supply, four did fine the first few days and one was really bad. Three of the four fine ones died within three days, and the really bad one and our silkie survived. But we noticed that the really bad one was having troubles, when ever the silkie chick was out of sight, like on the opposite side of the food bowl, she peeped incessently even with other younger chicks around. And she called the silkie and just couldn't seem to locate her even if the silky called back. Thats how we figured out she's deaf, we need to know how to integrate her safely In the future when it's time.
