I've been reading tons on chicks. I had some before but I think I did it wrong and they all just happenened to survive. I ended up keeping one that I have now. My neighbor had a chicken and they were gal pals. A few months ago Chippy's gal pal died and she's been lonely. My parents aren't too fond of more chickens and I promised I would only want one more hen since it's not healthy for one chicken to live alone. I want a chick. I heard if you raise just one chick they will think humans are their flock and be socially awkward. What if all through it's chickhood I let it play with my hen? Or would that not go over well and the chick would still be awkward? I found a local craigslist ad with a one week old red sex link pullet and australorp pullet only 15 minutes from my house. Just the breeds I was looking for. So what should I do?
