Hello there, This is my first post after lurking for some time! I currently have thee 4-week old mixed chicks and one 5-week old Easter Egger. Today, I ran a PCR to sex my chicks (I work in a molecular biology lab; easy to do) and discovered that the Easter Egger is a cockerel. Disappointment is high, especially since I had worked especially hard with him since he was rather skittish from the start, and he had just started to calm down significantly in the last week . Alas, my wife and I would really like an Easter Egger/Ameraucana in our flock, but I fear that the there is no safe way to introduce a new chick into the group. Has anyone had any experience doing this, introducing a similarly-aged or younger chick into a group? I worry that the only way to make it work would be to start raising another pair of chicks on their own, and we would rather not have to do that. Any experience/advise/reference to similar past posts appreciated!
