    I recently purchased two 1 month old chicks at a farm sale. My intent was to raise them and eventually introduce them into my flock of 7 adult hens. One of the chicks just died and I’m now left with a single month old chick. Looking for some tips on how to raise this one until I can introduce her to the rest.

  2. Are you home a lot? Keep it with you as much as you can, some people use feather dusters, feather boas, and stuffed animals as company for lonely chicks :)
