Hi guys,
I recently bought my fluffly little guy from a school's spring fair!
Thought I might be needing some advice on how to keep it a happy chick!
I already have 2 grown silkies, Tuesday & Melancholy and three highland browns Ethel, Florence and Abbie.
Waiting for Chicky to get bigger before introducing to the older hens!

Chickens are very social animals. For your chick to grow up normally and be integrated with your other birds, it needs a friend or two it's own age, so that it learns how to be a chicken, and so that it is not alone.
