Yay another cutie! Congrats! Sorry everybody is having single hatches.
Today mine woke me up with the emergency chirp. I checked food, water, bedding, heat, all good. Turns out he just needed a cuddle so I carried him around while I did chicken chores an hour early.
I just picked up a pair of Rhodebar chicks to keep mine company.
Mine has silkies and faverolles for company but sometimes he wants a big hug.
mine thankfully has its hatch-pal -- at 3 days old, they are both quite easy-going so far, quiet & no freaking out:
(the splash is the isbar, the other is an australorp/SFH cross)
My chicks wish they were in Sonoma County too. I'm from Santa Rosa. Miss it.
Came home to 4 blues, 2 splash and one black...there is a really weak blue that I don't think is going to make it.
No movement from the other eggs so I think we are done.
Same alarm clock this morning. After chicken chores, he went back to bed. Takes a lot longer with one hand. I will have to wear something with a pocket tomorrow.
will they stay put in a pocket? i'm determined to get these two chicks accustomed to being handled, after having a bunch of broody-raised chicks this summer who are terrified of me -- but hadn't thought of popping them in pockets & carrying around!
When a chick gets sick, I wrap them in a bandana and tie it around my neck, (read it on BYC somewhere). I carry them around and hand feed them for a few days until better. They are friendly after that. You could do that with one for 2 days, then the other. Right now I'm carrying around a turkey that was the only egg that hatched. He is my pal now. We are like .
