Hi everyone. I need some ideas and advice. I started with six chicks at the beginning of April. We had a tragedy and lost one four weeks later. I decided to "replace" the chick the next day; so, there would be a 4-5 week difference in the two groups. Unfortunately, I just experienced another loss of one of the newer ones. Besides the heartache, I'm wondering if there are opinions on getting new chick/s for the remaining month- old, or should I just introduce the sole chick to the older ones? I don't mind getting new ones if I knew the remaining month-old would be ok with the additions, or am I just reproducing the same potential problems the month old will face with the older group? I was thinking she would be more open to new chicks and then the three of them would be a force for the older group once it was time to meet the in-laws . Essentially is there any best practice in this situation? Also, the lone chick is extra attached to me...aka docile..even roosts on my shoulder. Thanks. I'm a newbee so not very wise with this particular animal kingdom. Thanks.
