    While doing yard work I found a chick in the yard. After hours chasing it around i finally caught it before the dog did. No one seems to miss it in the neighborhood so now we got her two sisters and will have a small brood. The chick we found has a few scabs on her back and her head quickly twitches even when she sleeps. Don't know if she is sick or what.

    [​IMG]. Could one of the other hens have pecked it too hard?

    Greetings from Kansas, LithiumPyrite, and [​IMG]! Wow! An unplanned entry into the world of poultry raising! [​IMG] If you plan on keeping the chick (and why not!?!?), you might consider getting at least one more. Chickens are super social and don't do well alone. Hope it all works out for you!!
