    She is a grey silkie and she is sweet.

    Will she be safe with the other hens or do I have to seperate the babies and moms?

    Congrats on the new chick! [​IMG] It's hard to say if mom will protect her from the other hens. Sometimes they do well and other times they don't. I would watch closely for how they react to the new family member and be prepared with a new space just in case.

    Thanks Jody.
    Hard to believe something could be so mean to such a cute vulnerable little thing.
