    My Sussex chick is about 3 1/2 weeks old and so are my 11 cornish rocks. We are moving the cornish rocks in their own stall.
    My sussex chick cried and cried we finally figured out she wanted to be with the cornish rocks. She stopped crying when we put her with them
    My rocks are being seperated from the other 7 chicks, only the sussex cries all the time. will she stop because my rocks are only going to be with us 3 more weeks. thanks for the help

    She will stop eventually, but you have to realize those cornish rocks are her family and she wants to be with them. I'm not sure of your numbers...are you keeping 4 rocks or are all of them out in 3 weeks? Will the Sussex be alone in 3 weeks? If there are chicks she can be with she will be happier.
