in another thread i asked about a chick that hatched 4-5 days behind a flock of 14, that are running around the yard. i put the new chick in a box in the house, and he is eating a tad of starter, and a little water. he hatched monday afternoon, and the first time i saw the other biddies was saturday, when momma hen had them out. now,,, would it be rational, good or bad,, to catch 3-4-5 of the yard biddies and put them in the house box with my new hatch??? then, after a few days, give them all back to momma hen??? it would give the little fellow some company, and maybe allow him to bond with other chicks???? what'cha think????? re-introduce the whole gang back to momma hen, with a mystery guest slipped in there.
