    Yes, I am now a member of the people who put new-hatched chicks in their bras for a few hours [​IMG] The baby was shrink wrapped, and Momma hen was pecking it, so I helped it out, and then could only think of one warm spot... and so little Pip spent about an hour in my bra [​IMG]

    One little thing I'm worried about, Pip has some blood on his bottom, from where his umbilical cord was. Should I be worried?

    Quote:Nope. You COULD put some triple antibiotic on it, as long as it doesn't have any pain relief stuff (anything ending in -caine) if you wish. And leave it be.
