    So we had a chick hatch Friday he others aren't due to hatch till Tuesday the chick is bored out of its kind what should I do? He runs around and pecks at the wall and he's only two days old!!! I out a plastic cup in the for him to play with to see if that would help out he just jumps on it and climbs inside. Any suggestions on what I should do.

    Place a small mirror in the brooder so that he has a 'buddy' to play with.
