    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!

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    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.
