My niece's class have been incubating eggs, and they will be sending a chick home with each student. Knowing I already have chickens, she asked if her chick could live with me.. and who am I to deny a six year old's pleading request. I have raised chicks before, but I had six. Will one chick be okay in the brooder alone? I know this may sound silly.. but will the chick be lonely? Won't it be harder for it to regulate its temperature without all of its friends to pile on? Maybe I'm just worried for no reason.. it just seems strange to hand out a chick to a six year old!
