What to do if you only hatched one chick?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I got these eggs from a local breeder and out of 18 only 3 look to be growing. I opened up all 15 and they weren't even fertile. I also got 6 shipped eggs and only 3 out of those look good but 2 have the horse shoe shaped air cells. I'm not trying to jump the gun but I am afraid I will only have one hatch. If I do what should I do? I don't have any feed stores that are selling baby chicks anymore and I also can't order online because I don't need 25 chicks. What would be the best way to raise just one chick?

 

6 Chickens!!  Silkie, 2 mutts, 2 Seabrights, and a Easter Egger

 

I <3 them all :P..... FIRST EGG 1/16/12 from Rosie.

To start you can add a mirror, stuffed animal or feather duster. That won't help forever. It will still need friends so you can go to a feed store and buy a couple.
