    I just hatched a lonely chick and would really like to find a playmate for it. I was hoping someone from Central or North Illinois could part with a young chick.

    You should really post this in the "buy-sell-trade Chicks/chickens" message board... Much more likely to find somone local, who can help!!

    If you can't find any I have 2 bantam eggs hatching in a few days in eastern Iowa. Free if you can drive to about the IL border to get them. I'm not interested in keeping anymore buffs and was just testing whether my black tailed buff hen was fertile and producing healthy chicks.

    I feel your pain. I had 3 little bantam chicks to hatch. Checked on them before I went to bed, all was good...checked when I got up, the heat lamp bulb had blown (brand new only used for 2 days) and 2 of the 3 were dead. I am sooo upset...and the little chick is very lonely.

    I have babies that I hatched Nov 8. I have a rosecomb that you can have for $6.

    I am really wanting days old chicks as a playmate. Bumping up this thread in case someone close to me has a hatch. I have my lonesome chick in the brooder now all alone. [​IMG]

    I ended up raising a lone chick...she turned out fine. Had some socialization issues growing up with the other hens, and ended up wearing a diaper and living in my house at night, but could go out during the day with the big girls.

    Hope you find a chick. I was planning on hatching some this winter, but got too busy with the holidays and such.
