    Have a chick that we rescued from another farm. Miss Gizmo was born on May 6th. She is still in the brooder but soon we will have to introduce her to the flock. How is this done without harm to her?

    Just put her in with the others. If they're going to pick on her, they'll start doing it immediately. I read somewhere that it helps if you can put her in with the others but have a fence between them - that way they can see her and get used to her but not peck at her.
