We had a single chick hatch out of our first real attempt at hatching our own eggs last summer, and I was so worried cause my other chicks were all 4 weeks or older at the time, so my little Indie went into a brooder by herself in the bathroom with a little stuffed animal, but she was so lonely. Every time someone came in the bathroom she'd run up to them and cheep like mad, so it got to the point where we held her constantly. It was myself and my two daughters holding her all the time. It was the intention that she would be our house chicken since I tried to add her to my flock of standards and they nearly killed her (she's a Welsummer mix). So she came inside to let her injuries heal, and she lived in the house for about 5 months or so, but the brat refused to wear her diaper, and she got into EVERYTHING, worse than the human kids, lol, so we knew that she absolutely HAD to go outside. Another factor was that she suddenly didn't want to be picked up, she would run the opposite direction if she saw people coming. So I made the decision to add her to my Bantam flock, and she got beat up a little at first, but she fit in pretty fast, and now she's an integral part of the flock. She's a little small for a standard which works out perfectly. For a long time while she was inside the house she was rather high strung. I've noticed that it seems to be a Welsummer trait since I have more than a half dozen birds/chicks that are Welsummer mixed with one thing or another, and that particular trait drives me nuts, HOWEVER, they do seem to mellow out as they get older. Indie is now 10 months old and she has calmed down tremendously. Funny thing is, if you take her out of the chicken yard and set her down, she still follows us around like a puppy dog, and will come running into our arms when we call her. She came up to me last night, and again this morning just to get her hugs and kisses. I wish she would have worked out inside the house, but I'm now glad that she's happy outside with the flock. I have not had luck getting a chicken to wear their diapers yet, cause I've tried repeatedly, so I guess inside chickens just aren't meant to be for me. At the moment I'm brooding some 30+ birds, but one in particular has stolen my heart, it's my BR pullet Hope. I actually bought her and 6 other chicks last month. The rest I hatched out, but Hope has stolen my heart. She is the calmest chick I've EVER had, and loves to sit with me and snuggle. She is awesome. I hope to have a strong bond with her for many years to come. Good luck with your little Sweet Pea. I love that name, by the way. Had the sweetest little Chihuahua by that name, but some ignorant person decided to poison my dog last summer and she died. It's a perfect name for a tiny bundle of joy though. Good luck with her. Oh, and by the way, about 8 years ago I had a chick that my ex just came home with one day, and I knew NOTHING about chicks or how to care for them, and he stayed in one of those little plastic carrying cases you can buy at the pet store at night to sleep, with a heating pad under him, but at all other times I held him. We lived in the suburbs of Chicago at the time, and chickens were illegal to start with, and he turned out to be a roo and we had to get rid of him, but he was a joy as a chick with all the snuggling. Just keep her warm, and she'll be fine.
