    Well, whatever it is, it's adorable! It looks like a little owl.

    I have only had it for 2 days; it's almost 3weeks old. It's a gray and black colored feathering. I put it in with all the bigger 5-6 week olds and they are all pecking at it so I pulled him out. Will they leave him alone once they establish pecking order?

    Quote:i put my 1 wk old chicks in a clear brooder withing the coop for 1 week before letting them mix with the 4wk olds that were already in there. things seemed to work out well. i just made sure there were two locations to hide, get water and food.
