    One of my silkie chicks died today. I knew something was wrong a few days back she was not thriving. I did everything I was able to do for her. Not a good hatch. Only 1 left. [​IMG] She was 1 week old.

    Thanks all...now I have one silkie chick in the brooder by herself. I don't have any little stuffed animals to put in there so I rolled up a sock. I'll probly end up bringing her in the house (she's in the basement) I feel bad for her all by herself.[​IMG]

    Will pray for your lone chick, hope it is the sole survivior. Got any TSC's by you? you might be able to scoop another chick real cheap to keep it company!

    sorry for your loss. Maybe you can hang a feather duster in a corner so she can snuggle in the feathers and not feel lonely. Bad hatches are so sad.... I've had some myself, so I know how frustrated and sad you must feel. Sorry. [​IMG]

    Here he is 3 weeks later...he loved that feather duster.

    Pretty sure it's a boy.
