Some people had followed my Integration Panick threads (Aart, Mrs.K, chickens really, etc.) and I'm glad they were able to help, and the chicks are alive and living in somewhat peace with my 5 month pullets. The chicks are about a month and a half. If you'd like to really help and hear what I have done, click here! Now I say somewhat because the pullets haven't drawn blood or tried to kill the chicks, but the chicks have been pretty scared to death and only eat and drink when the pullets go into the run. They also sleep in (only) the nesting box which isn't really a nesting box yet since none of our chickens will lay eggs for at least another month. I tried more feeders and water containers but the chicks are a little frightened to eat or drink anywhere NEAR the pullets. I also don't know if they don't know HOW to use the ladder to get into the run, or if they are scared of leaving the safety of the coop. I've let them free range with the pullets but the chicks try to stay as far as possible away from the pullets while sticking close to the coop or my house. The chicks also act like they will die if not next to each other at ALL times. Since the pullets were my first chickens and all came together, this was my first integration and I'm confused on why they are STILL living in complete fear. They've been living in the coop with the pullets for almost a month. I get they aren't that old but these being my second chicks I've had, I'm very protective of them and don't want them to be too scared to EAT from something less than two feet from them! I'm worried they'll always be like this and never live happily with me. But I'd also like to mention that the pecking order wasn't/isn't established yet between my pullets, though I'm pretty sure they are making it right now, but they almost completely ignore the chicks unless the chicks get in the way or they see them and think, "Oh look, forgot they were here!". I just want what's best for my babies and would NEVER EVER want an animal to feel pain and sadness because of me or what I'm not doing. Please help, I'm a desperate chicken mama!
