    Today we picked up 3 new chicks to keep my lonely chick company. Pics will come soon, they are really pretty, though. They are really friendly to my lonely chick, they all get along really well. Problem is, all my little chick wants is me. It just sits there and paces back and forth in the box or the tractor, trying to get to me.

    Should I give in and pick it up, or should I leave it alone and let it get used to its new friends? I picked it up when I got home and it ran up my arm, snuggled in my hair, and nuzzled its beak into my ear. It sat there purring away. I think I've become mama hen to that little chick, and I hate to just cold turkey stop loving on it, you know?

    Ooooh, it was just side tracked by a piece of spaghetti. LOL ...nevermind, it is holding on to the spaghetti while pacing back and forth. haha [​IMG] Poor thing.

    Here are some pictures. The new chicks are Americauna mixes. According to the guy I got them from, at least one of them is Cochin/Americauna mix. Not sure about the other two. I think they are all really cool looking though. They were hatched on May 15th, so they are almost a month old.

    My lonely baby. Silver Laced Polish. Getting more and more hair every day.

    This one is really big, but had great markings. It has double back toes.

    They are very cute! I'm sure your lonely chick will get used to his new friends after staying the night with them. Hopefully they'll all wake up buddy buddy. [​IMG]
