Hi everyone, I raised 4 baby chicks this spring and lost 2. One I just recently lost to an Opossum (that we found and relocated). After that incident I was only left with two chickens and decided to get more. So I adopted a pair of Silkies that were also raised together as chicks. I took them home with their own coop and had since been trying to integrate the two pairs. My original larger chickens are a Wyandotte and an Orpington. So they are a lot larger than the silkies. I have been housing them in separate coops because my larger hens are such bullies. Just last week we had another loss, one of my silkies was killed in my yard (We think a bird of some sort) So I'm left with only one small silky. Who is currently ALONE in her own coop. Now this week the bigger ones are ganging up on her and I'm unsure what to do. Will I ever be able to house them in the same coop/run? Will they ever accept her as part of their "pack"? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I feel so awful since she is all alone every night and even during the day she is always just running away from them. I am noticing she is trying to get closer with them, trying to eat with them. But my original hens are not having any of it. My daughter looooves all the chickens and has since been babying the lonely silky. I'm almost to a point of getting a bird diaper and bringing her in just to give her a rest from my "bullies".
