Hi, I took an injured chick from the feedstore that had broken toes and a possible sprain or broken joint in one leg. Splinted her successfully and she is walking fine now. I have a friend who has an existing bunch of chicks, same standard size although different breed (hers are califormia white/ameracauna and my chick is RIR) and close to same age (about 7-9 days old at this time). Have any of you had any luck introducing a single chick into an existing hen/chicks? Does mom accept the chick usually? Any input is appreciated. I'd rather not keep a single and then introduce to my adults in a few mos, but have done that in the past. Wouldn't it be better to put with the hen and chicks since this one recovered fine?.....I always keep the ones that do Not recover or rehab completely. But, this one seems good.
