Newly hatched chick

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a newly hatched chick, we got the egg out of the chicken pen when the hen left with the other babies. I brought it in the house put it under the lamp it sat for about 4 days and hatched about an hour ago. It still hasn't fluffed yet but is chirpping constantly. Any ideas what to do to "calm" it down?

It is lonely. Put a mirror in with it. A stuffed animal or feather duster works. Don't buy those because you'll probably want to put the chick in with the others tonight after dark.
