Hello, I seem to have a miniture chicken on my hands. I started this spring with 2 silkie chicks. After a few months we got 6 Frizzle chicks that were about 6 weeks old. One of the frizzles, now named Cupcake, was much smaller then the rest. I did inquire about this to the lady I bougtht them from and she assured me she was the same "litter" as the rest. We intraduced the 4 biggest of the frizzles into the coop with the 2 silkies and had minimal clashing but discovered the one silkie, Speedie, was and still is the definate dominant bird. I put Cupcake and one other of her littlermates in the garage for the summer to grow. Well, over the months eveyone has grown except cupcake. Well, she is a little bigger but half the size of the rest. She seems healthy and cute as can be. She still doesn't roost but prefers to sleep in the nesting box. Now, the questions. I have built a bigger coop with a bigger run for everyone. I am in Wisconsin and it is getting cold fast. Is it inevideble that cupcake is going to be picked on as a little tyke? Any suggestions on introducing her to the rest in the new coop? Out of the eight, I believe I have 2 roosters that are frizzles (only one crows-sorta) and judging by the behavior of Speedie and the size, I am speculating he is a male as well, but hard to tell with silkies. Thoughts?
