    It's day two of our new Polish and new Silkie with the 4 wk old Silkies. The Polish is picked on a little less, but is not eating and now is showing signs of weakness. Right now she's in a box within the brooder. The box is near but not directly under the heat lamp. I put the other new baby (the silkie) in there with her, because she eats well on her own, hoping she'd show the other the ropes. There's nothing but a sizable lump of food in there with them.

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

    EDIT: Thought this was the raise baby forum, my mistake.
