Ok, I posted this also in the Raising Chicks section, but someone suggested I come here for some advice, so here I am. The situation is that my daughter thought she would sneak two little button quail eggs into my bator with my Silkie eggs, and figured either I wouldn't notice, or I'd be ok with it once they were already in there. Well, I didn't notice them, at least, not where she had placed them. So today is when the Silkie eggs were due for lockdown. So as I'm removing them from the turner and placing them into the other bator, my younger DD catches sight of some movement in the bator, under the turner. So I lift up the turner and what do I find? The absolute tiniest chick in the world!!! One of the two little quail eggs hatched, and now I have this uber tiny chick, not even as big as my thumb, and not sure how to care for it. I already gave my daughter an earful for doing this, but I have this little life, and I want to make sure I can do everything possible to make sure it lives. Can anyone give me some advice on how to care for it? I don't want to brood it with the chicken chicks, it's too small, but can I place this baby's brooder inside the bigger brooder for a while so they can share the heat lamp? (No money at the moment for a second lamp) Do I crush the food? When can it have treats, and how fast does it grow? Any information that is offered would be so very much appreciated. Thank you! By the way, I have experience with chickens, ducks, parrots, and adult button quail, but I've never had a chick THIS tiny before! This is the smallest thing I've ever seen!
