I think she is a silver spangled hamburg(?) but I'm not positive.. Also how do I introduce her to my year old hens? They have an established pecking order- Paula is the boss and Darwin is at the bottom- I get worried because my other hens seemed pretty ok with Cheeky the chick, but Paula pecked at her the first time I tried briefly introducing them, and then the second time she stepped/stomped(?) on her. Cheeky is totally ok no worries about health , I had her separated for weeks in my room-not very sanitary but it was the only place I could for the few weeks I had her inside- yesterday I actually moved my baby outside and closed the run, my girls are free range so they aren't missing out much, and put Cheeky in there. I think letting them see her but not touch her until she is bigger is a good idea, right? I'm not at all experienced with introducing chickens to each other. All my hennies were raised together! So by now they get along. Thanks for your help!!
