    He might get lonely as he gets older, or he might become very 'clingy' and peep if you leave him alone or go out of sight. You could buy him some friends - it's a good excuse to get more chicks anyway [​IMG]

    Or you could try him with a cuddly toy in his brooder, or a mirror - even if you buy more chicks i'd give them a mirror, just because it's hilarious to watch them posing in front of it [​IMG]
