Started with 3 silkie chicks from a rather questionable source to me, but my wife was already sold before we stepped out of the car. We learned a hard lesson within a week, 2 of the 3 have died. Hard for us to say from what, we had them on medicated feed and a couple of days after we got them, decided to put them on Corid. Changed bedding everyday, kept the brooder at the proper temp, etc., etc. We have raised 4 others with no problems whatsoever. Despite that, I read everything I could about what to do and what not to do, but it didn't help. So, here we are, one chick in the brooder. I read that a mirror would help them to feel less lonely, and that definitely has seemed to help. We are not sure what to do next though. The last one has acted healthy for the entire week, but after reading some articles here, I know that I should keep the chick quarantined for at least a month. I have two main concerns and both of them have to do with the fact that it is one chick. 1. Chickens are flock animals, so I have concerns about the stress of constantly being alone. 2. Then, even if the chick does survive the loneliness, I'm introducing one silkie chick to a flock of 4 much bigger birds. I must also add that I don't have room for lots more chickens. We had arranged a deal with the seller that we would raise 3 and give back 2 as soon as we were able to sex them. We don't want any roosters. We had planned to put them with two other Cream Legbar chicks that I had bought and thought introducing all of them to our two Buff Orpingtons would be a good way to smooth out the pecking order, but that doesn't seem like a possibility now. I assume my options are to try to buy another chick or chicks to help with these issues, but I am having trouble find another local source and won't go back to that seller. I also assume that I can wait it out, let the silkie get a couple of months old and carefully introduce it to the flock using a variety of techniques described on the forums. Reading generic articles does not equal good advice from experienced chicken owners, so here I am. What would you do?
