Hey all, it's day 2 of our new Pol.ish and new silkie in with the 4 wk old silkies. I did the "rearrange then put the old guys in with the new ones already there method" Not perfect, but manageable. The meanest older silkie is in the big boy box with the 7.5 week old BO pullet (temp coop). Enough to put a lil scare into him, but not exactly a monster in there . He was pretty rough on the Polish's legs and head and...well everything. My roomate and I had a laugh about "racist chickens" but is it really possible they pick on the Polish due to being differnt? The Silkie baby is much more accepted though not entirely. The Polish baby doesn't seem to eat a lot and is showing signs of weakness now (the older ones would peck at the legs) so I put him in a separate box in the brooder with tons of feed in it. I take him out every now and again to dip his beak in some water. I've caught him eating some, but am still a little worried. Any other thoughts?
