    Hi everyone,
    I've had chickens for 4 years but recently tried building an incubator. Only 1 egg hatched (of 4) and now we have a lonely 3 day old chick. Anyone have a single new chick they could spare (sell)? The feed stores won't sell fewer than 5...
    Thanks! :)

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    Until you find a friend for your chick, put a small soft stuffed toy or a feather duster in the brooder for comfort

    Thanks for the friendly welcome. Yes, I did put a rubber ducky in with the chick and also a mirror which it looks at a lot. I found a hobbyist nearby who will swap me 2 chicks for a laying hen. So the problem will be solved soon. Also, we used lits of info from this site &others to build the incubator from a cooler & light bulb. It seems the 3 other eggs/chicks died on the very last day :-( Nervewracking undertaking!
