    I tried my hand at incubating. Six eggs went in the bator, but sadly only 1 chick hatched. I learned a lot, however I am now faced with having only one chick right now. I am looking if there is anyone close to me who might have a friend or two for fuzzy, but in the meantime, what do I need to know about raising only one chick?

    You can put a mirror in the brooder and also some people put a feather duster for the chick to stand under like a mama. They get very lonely.
