    Hi everyone I'm new to the site and new to owning chickens. I have two Bluebell chickens Bea and Bluebell and two bantam sussex chickens one white Sweetpea and one buff Dandilion.
    My Buff has always slept with the light sussex (I bought her with) every night since I got them (1 and a half weeks ago) but now she is being left in the cold whilst the other 3 are huddled together all nice and toastie. They don't seem to be pecking her or bothering her during the day. Will she be ok?
    Thanks Gem

    As long as she is warm enough she will be fine. Make sure she gets her share of food and water. Usually chicks that are huddled together are trying to get warm. I could be the the lone girls is al right and the others are cool. I am not sure how old they are from your post. If they are 1-1/2 weeks old, I guess that you still have a light on them. Do you mean that she is out in the cold literally or figuratively?
