I have six chicks the same age (about 4 weeks old): two silkies, one frizzle, and i have been told my other three are cochins-- one blue cochin and the other are multi-colored. My two multi-colored chicks are fighting w my frizzle, but everyone else gets along. Any ideas why?
I have seperated them, but cannot raise them separately. Not sure what to do. I love my little frizzle!

It might just be that they're not really trying to pick on him but the frizzle feathers are intriguing for them. It also could be that it's an early pecking order. Was your frizzle bleeding at all from the attack?

x2. Even very young chicks will squabble for their place in the pecking order. If no one is bleeding or getting injured, I'd put them back together and leave them that way.
