Hi We took a couple of silkie eggs into the house as it was so cold. They hatched but the small one dies after a few days. I have kept the other one in the house under a lamp. It is a month old now and has feathers and absolutely fine. I have removed the heat lamp to get it more accustomed to the climate. My next plan is to move it outside possibly into an empty stable and put it inside a spare mini coop, again to acclimatise it. My plan is to at some point then move this cage next to my silkie coop so they get used to seeing each other before I out the little one in? How will the other hens and cockerel react to this little guy going in? Also, one of the silkies is sitting on four eggs (they get broody really easily) and they should hatch in a few days unless the freezing weather killed the chicks. Do I just leave them in with the other silky hen and cockerel or should I remove her from the others. How does a cockerel react to the chicks? I have had chickens for a couple of years but the cockerel is a relatively new addition so the whole chick thing is new to me. Any help would be great. Thank you.
