    [​IMG] Hi! My name's Iris. I live on a small farm in Wisconsin, USA. I've had chickens all my life. I'm currently caring for my solo incubator chick, Ashildr, and I'm looking to get a feather duster for her to snuggle with until I can, hopefully, get some buddies for her!

    I don't really have much to say...just wanted to introduce myself! [​IMG]

    Thanks for reading!

    [​IMG] glad you have joined us.

    Some people use small stuffed animals to offer a pseudo-companion.

    I have seen the idea of feather dusters, just watch to make sure the chick doesn't pick and eat those feathers.

    Hope you find some chicks to raise with her very soon.

    stuffed toys are great and so are unbreakable small mirrors - they think they see another chick.
