    Hey everyone, I just bought 4 royal palms, they are about 2 weeks old. Brought them home put them in a brooder box and they layed their not moving for about 12 hours.
    So based on some of my research, i'm a newbie but love to learn. my gf is a farm girl.. anyhoot
    I read somewhere that i can introduce these babies to a chicken hen.
    So first of all i have 2 Broad breasted bronze and the hen has 4 new pouts, no go she attacked them straight away,,, no injuries...
    So i moved on to my best buff silkie who just hatched 7 silkies about 10 day's old no go injuries...
    So i moved them in a larger brooder box with a red 40 watt bulb and about 4 hours after they finally started eating and chirping.
    Tips and hints are welcomed..
    I live in northern ontario canada

    Leave them in the brooder.It is going to be better for them.

    If they were day old you could try putting them under your broody.
