    My 7 week old ee is biting the neck of my 7 week old silkie. She screams and screams. I have 14 chicks and they all sleep together except this silkie. What is going on? Should I be worried? Should i isolate the silkie? -nervous new mom

    They will be fine. Teenage squabbles. They have to learn to play nice. The pecking order begins to be established early on.

    Why is she the only one being singled out. She is sooo sweet and doesn't even get to sleep with her friends. She is always alone :(
