    i have a chick that just hatched a day early from his buddies in the incubator that are just now pipping.
    i think he is lonly in the brooder by his self.
    what should i do to curb this.
    i know this is not a very serious problem, but i dont like to see the little guy by self since these are social creatures.

    A small stuffed animal or a featherduster sometimes helps.

    One of my chicks came a day before the others and after it was dry I had it out of the bator and it slept with me. But my DH came down in the morning ( I slept on the couch waiting for the others) and ask where the chick was, I had no idea [​IMG] Here I put it on my side. Thank God I didn't hurt it.
