    My chick is all alone in her box because my other chicks got eaten by a bird yesterday. Can I put a stuffed toy or rubber toy in her box/container so she won't be lonely? I feel so bad for her because she doesn't have a friend with her. I'm the only one she has. When I put her outside she gets back into the garage. She's probably terrified of going outside because of the "experience" she went through :( ~My3ChicksMBD

    We had a raccoon get in some ducklings a few years ago. Same thing had one baby left. Put in a stuffed animal that is small and similar in color to his family. It does help.

    Yes, you can put in a small stuffed toy. As Dandelion56 said, it will be best if the toy is small and similar to her in color. [​IMG]

    I put a toy in there but it isn't her color. The toy is colorful but I should be able to get another chick this weekend. :)
