    As i said
    I brought a chick to the house last Tuesday
    My cousin owned it and he had grown up for a while
    he was alone for a long time
    he was very calm and slow-moving, and seemed sick
    But after a bit of walking in the garden and eating grass, he was swept away
    And even found places to hide
    I put his name "white tailed"(Dom sefid)
    But the problem with my first day was ...
    My previous chick (Salar) had grown up with a duckling baby since childhood
    And now it can not tolerate another chicken!
    When he sees the new chick, he goes to him and pulls out his feathers
    She just ran away
    I had to separate their cages
    I put my cages very close together to get used to
    But he has not come along with him!
    I do not know what to do ! There is enough food and space for everyone!
    And strangely, the old chick looks younger than him!
    I do not know their race and gender
    But I guess they're from a gender
    Photo is also available
    please help!
    this is Salar , with 12 weeks old , The Old chicken:

    Keep them in see but no touch (like you do now) mode for awhile longer. It’s totally normal not to get along at first. As long as hey have enough room to free range, you will have to let them duke it out and establish their pecking order. Also, if the bullied chick is smaller than the older chickens, create a “panic room” where the chick can run away into it and bigger birds can’t follow.
    But the behavior is normal. Not tolerating new birds is just instinct as they are “intruding” on territory and sharing the food source. Give it time.

    Good luck!! I have a Bantam rooster who is picked on, sometimes I’ll sit in the run and he’ll be at my feet, and if a bully chicken comes along and pecks at him I will “peck” that chicken back with my finger by giving it a quick and firm bop on the back of the head/neck. This simulates a dominating rooster correcting bad hen behavior and can sometimes help. I never “hit” them bc they are just doing what’s natural; I just try to think like a chicken and get down on their level and always remind them that I am the HBIC. Lol.
