    My chick Anika is not feeling well.[​IMG]All I know is she doesn't eat that much, she doesn't drink her water, she has a hurt wing,and she threw up.[​IMG] The swedish flower roosters pick on her and the hens.

    Since the others are picking on her, they are likely also preventing her from eating and drinking, at least part of the time. I wouldn't separate her unless I felt I had to, but I would separate her long enough for her to eat and drink a few times a day. They will benefit from at least two feeders and waterers for a while (you can just add a couple of old bowls, especially if you are around them all day.)
