I have a old heating pad under the puppy pad. He or she likes to lay on the heat and stretch out. For bed time i have a old fuzzy house shoe the chick crawls into and sleeps. Kind of like a little kangaroo in its pouch. lol

Ok so Pete is lonely. I know i have seen to keep him away from chickens and off the ground. I was wondering if i could give him a fresh hatched chicken chick to be friends with. this chick will be fresh out of the incubator and should be free of worms since it has never touched ground. i have been reading where others have raised 1 single pea chick with a chicken chick so it is not to lonely. I don't want to do any thing that could harm Pete. But don't want him so spoiled that i need to hold him 24/7. any help would be great Thank you all

Ok so all 10 of the silkie eggs hatched over the last 3 days, last one came out today. So Pete has all the company he can stand. He is eating and drinking on his own. And he seems to be a happy little peachick.
