    I have six chicks and one has scissor beak, so I'm getting rid of it (can't keep it because I breed) I was wondering can I get just another chick or will the rest all pick on it they're really young.

    Are you going to be killing the chick?
    If so I would try to give it away instead as someone
    Would probably take it for a pet.
    They look like cream legbars so I am sure someone would love her.
    I have had chicks with scissor beak and because I breed and show
    I either had a choice to cull or give away and I gave them away very quickly.

    As for the new chick.
    The chicks there now should accept it in.
    I have done it many times with a lone chick

    Goodluck,
    Fionn.

    Ok and I can't bring myself to cull I have before with a broken leg and DO NOT want to do it again. I'm going to give it away as a pet and make sure whoever gets it knows how to take care of it. They're also just Easter eggers but a lot of people I know wants pretty eggs and I got them because of all the different colors they lay.

    I have no experience with Easter eggers
    But I do have barbu D'Anvers.
    When barbu D'Anvers hatch they have a small beard.
    I am not sure if it is the same for Easter eggers but I'm guessing it is?
    Goodluck.
