I got 2 adorable Lavender D'Uccles mid June at a swap. I am guessing their ages to be somewhere between 12-14 weeks, though they are tiny little things. A roo I named Sam and a hen named Angel. I got 2 other chicks at the same time. I kept them separate from my flock for about 3 weeks, though they could all see each other. I gradually introduced them all to each other and as of 3 days ago, they are all living harmoniously together, though they certianly have their cliques, lol. My Sam is the only roo, and though he is a peanut, he is certianly taking his place as The Roo. I am worried about Angel. I have always called her my fragile girl, as she is so petite and small. She has always seemed a bit...well, behind, or delayed. This morning when I went out to let everyone out (they free range) she was just sitting in the henhouse. She wouldn't stand up or come out. I gave her a few moments and she eventually did, but it seems like she is tired. She walks a bit, then just sits down. She seems like whe is keeping her head/neck in, instead of stretching it out as you would see a normal chicken walking about. Her legs seem fine, she does not have any bugs, her poops are fine as far as I can tell, she isn't pasty...I put her near the food, though she didn't seem interested. Her eyes look clear and when I held her she made her sweet little sounds but...I am worried about her! Her 'clique-mates' notice she is slow and were picking on her straight away this morning. WHat should I do? should I separate her from the flock? I don't want her to be lonely and she is very attatched to Sam...She is my favorite baby and I am just so upset!
