Hello! I searched but couldn't find anything that matches my situation, so I'm asking here. I'll keep it short in hopes of making it an easy read. - We had 2 hens and 1 rooster (silkie roo), but recently lost the 2 hens. - Roo was solo for a couple weeks, but he seemed lonely (as were we). - We got a 1 yr silkie hen, and a 4 wk Cream Legbar chick, hoping the silkie hen would "mother" the chick - We are 4 days into the integration - The silkie hen is very aggressive to the chick (pecks her hard), but the chick wants to be next to her - She is also aggressive toward the roo right now, but that seems OK for the time being (assuming it will pass) - The roo seems stressed but shows interest in the hen, and ignores the chick (well, kind of eyeballs her, but doesn't do anything) Questions: - Is the silkie hen going to chill out and stop pecking the chick so hard when she feels settled in? - Should we get a couple more 4 wk chicks to keep the Legbar company while everyone is assimilating? Will that just add to the stress? Thanks!!
