Yesterday i tried integrating 1 lonely chick, he is 2 months old. One of the hens i have was being very nasty and constantly chased and pecked the chick so i put her in time out for most of the day, while in time out the chick wandered around without a problem. I let the hen out of time out a few hours before dusk so i could watch and see if it had made any difference, she did seem a little calmer towards the chick but after a while she reverted back to the constant pecking and chasing the chick away. At dusk they all went in and seemed calm so i put the chick up to roost, i checked a while later and all seemed ok so i left the chick in there for the night. When i went to let them out this morning the chick was wedged in a tiny corner between the brooder and wall, before i had even finished trying to get the chick out the hen was there trying to get to it, so i put the chick back in the brooder for now as i'm not sure what to do. There is 2 other chicks that are 3 months old in the coop and they too are chased and pecked a lot by the hen (who is their mother), they seemed used to it and just run when they see her coming. All suggestions and ideas gratefuly welcomed.
