    I hate having just one baby hatch and have nobody to keep it company. I put in a mirror with it, and it seems to be wanting to interact with it, but it's still peeping. I have some older babies, but they're too big, and I won't have any others hatch out until next week. I feel bad for my peep. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Someone in your area must have some babies. Post special looking on here... And keep an eye on craigslist. Also call a few farms in your area. Good luck [​IMG]

    The box I have it in isn't big enough to put anything in with it, really. My kids are teens, so I don't have anything to put in, anyway. I've been holding it and talking to it, acting like a momma chicken and teaching it to eat and drink. It's doing okay, I just hate having it alone, is all.
