It was an accidental hatch. How do I do this?!?
I advise getting a small stuffed animal, and putting it in with her. This way, she will feel more at home, as it will be like she's with other chicks. Try putting in a small mirror, too, so that she can see her reflection and think that she's with other chickens. Spend some time with her every day so that she doesn't get too lonely as well.
How will she learn chicken-y behavior?
Chicks, even those that aren't raised naturally, have certain instincts. Among those are to find food and water, scratch the ground, establish the pecking order, take dust baths, and be wary around predators. Your chick might turn out a bit different than your other chickens (more human-oriented), but she/he will still know how to act like a chicken.
Okay good . thank you both for the help
I have two chicks, 6 days old, and from 4 days when I got them, they got in the bowl and scratched it before eating. They have those traits in them, like Bantamlover21 said.
