Looks like a beauty! :love

Not all chicks that hatch will make it. They may have internal conditions we can't see once they are relying on their own body for nutrient absorption, digestion and such. If you are breeding and these are your eggs, we can try and take the time to diagnose what *may* have been the cause.

If you don't have any other chicks... maybe a feed store will still have a friend you can purchase? A single chick is a lonely chick. While it can be done... it is better (and easier) to raise at least 2 if you have that option. :fl

Congrats on your first baby! :wee
