Hello, my name is Alex, and I'm having some trouble with my baby chick. I used to have a hen and a few chicks, but everybody (except for the "runt") died. I think either a cat or a mongoose got into the pen somehow. Anyways, my only surviving chick keeps crying. She still eats and everything, she just won't stop chirping. She's running around, trying to find her mom and siblings I guess. What should I do? How do I get her to stop chirping constantly? I have a brother who raises chickens. He has a rooster or two, and a couple of hens (but no chicks). I also have a neighbor with plenty of roosters, hens, and chicks. Would it be better if I give the chick to one of them so she won't feel so lonely? Please help, I'm really feeling clueless right now
I say you should get some more chickens the same age/size and put them in like a water trough or dog cage and put a brooder lamp on it. Or you should give it to the neighbor because your neighbor has chicks!! Good Luck!
