Hi, I got a mix of chicks at TSC. There was one lone yellow fluff ball so I adopted her (I think it's a her). She always got along with and cuddled with the others - no issues other than she always wanted to be in the middle of the cuddle pile. She has started to isolate herself a bit. She keeps an eye on where everyone is but doesn't tend to roam around like the others. They went outside for the first time the other day and everyone went out scratching but her...stayed in the cage and scratched in there. She's healthy as far as I can tell. Eats and drinks fine and can run fast when she wants to! I thought she needed another silkie so I adopted a little black one who is about 4 weeks old. She pecks the daylights out of it. THe new one is in protective custody with two d'uccle pals it grew up with. Is she just weird or are silkies loners? Don't know much about chickens - have about 7 weeks experience at the moment. My others are two barred rocks (6 weeks or so), two little D'uccles who came in with the second silkie (four weeks or so), and three bantams (7 weeks and don't ask, I have no idea what the heck they are pretending to be, ha-ha). I have absolutely no idea who is a rooster and who is a hen at the moment....but that's a topic for another post. Thanks to you veterans who may have some insights.
