    I had to cull my little chick w/broke leg she was soo miserable crying all the time.But the other one left is all alone,will this cause any big problems?Will she get use to it? She was so mean to the other hurt chick and could not be with her at all.Any time she was put in with her she pecked at her relentlessly.I am afraid if I buy 1 chick from tsc she willl be mean to it.I have 38 eggs in the bator so eventually she will not be alone.I put in a stocking hat rolled up and now she is quiet.She had been crying.

    Im sorry you had to cull the wee one. Thats never easy. As for the single chick...try putting a mirror in there, and a stuffed animal...something she can cuddle with. Hope your eggs hatch soon!!
