Hi all, I need some advise on my gold-laced Brahma chick. Out of a clutch of nine shipped eggs it was the only one that hatched and it had to be helped because the membrane got stuck on its head. I am pretty sure that despite having 4 thermometers in my incubator I had temperature issues because this chick is seriously tiny. It is 2 1/2 weeks old now and just about the size of a small newly hatched chick. In fact, it is about the size of my Silkies when they were 2-days old. It eats well and it just starting to develop some primary feathers but it is just soooo tiny and not growing very quickly. I do not have any other chicks that I can put him with so I was considering finding a young chick (or two) to put with him so he has chicken friends and not just human friends. So I guess my questions are: do runty chicks ever survive long term and can they develop properly? and, would getting him a friend or two be good or are there potential issues? I really appreciate any insight. Thank you.
