    chicks,, But, now must keep them
    apart.. Will I ever be able to reunite

    newly laying hens and I fear one is

    Chances are you wont be able to put them back together unless they have enough space to get away from each other. They have to figure out who is boss. As for your hen... if it is egg problems. Try black sunflower seeds to get her oiled a bit. It could be something else though... like worms or some other sickness.
