How are they doing now? Eating OK?
My lone chick is a lot happier today as it got a new friend.. a day old bantam that my friends chicken hatched out.
At first my chicks was very jealous of it and would peck at it hard.. going for the eyes!
It did this every time it came near me. In the brooder it was very territorial and again attacked it.
But now its fine.. and the little new one gives as good as it gets.. it likes to peck the big ones toes!
The older one calmed down after some time out in the garden with the bigger chickens in its safety cage! Tired it out.
My hen is due to hatch her eggs in about 2 days time.. I am hoping I will be able to sneak there 2 in with her babies... I will keep you informed.
I want the older chick to become a chicken again.. as its imprinted on me.. which is very cute when it runs after me in the garden.. cheeping... and when it hops on my hand to be picked up and carried like a king. It even had a go at my rooster.. jumping at his eyes and pulling on his wattles... until the rooster got mad and gave it a hard peck.. but it kept going back for more!!! Brave or stupid I don't know.
