    Condensed version.

    Hatched ONE Salmon Fav chick - don't ask, bator issues. 2 weeks old

    Acquired ONE retarded (I'm almost positive .. hehe) silkie hen.

    Hen can't live with my flock - they try to kill her.

    Chick not thriving (being alone? or bator temp issues?)

    Anyway over the last couple of days I tried to work these two in together (In my garage). d'Oprah wasn't at ALL aggressive, but wasn't motherly either. Uno was confused by the new big fluffy black blob hovering around.

    Yesterday I put them outside together in the playpen for some sun. When it started to cool off, I ran to put them up because Uno isn't feathered.

    Here is what I found:

    You know .. her whole attitude HAS changed .. she was insecure .. not real active .. kinda vocal before she had d'Oprah. Now she's acting more like a regular chick .. dipping in and out of 'mom's' wings .. under her legs .. running around flapping her wings .. eating and drinking better ...

    It's an experiment in nurturing .. creatures really DO need others in their community to really thrive. [​IMG]
