I have 4 chicks and have been trying to take my chicks out at least once a day to hold each one for a little while to get them used to me. All is fine and well until I get to my Australorp who is the only dark colored one. When I take her out, the other chicks start peeping very loudly! They are so worried she is missing. What's weird is that they don't do it when I hold any of the others. I thought maybe it was because she was dark and she was easier to notice she was gone so I put in a small black teddy bear in thinking they might not notice so much. They were too smart for that. They are 4 weeks old now and still stress out about it. I know, soon enough they are going to be outside in their run and that won't be an issue anymore, but I'm curious if anyone else has ever experienced that.
