    When that happened to me this April, I contacted a local breeder and got a few more of approx same age so she wasn't lonely anymore. chicks are social animals and they love company.

    I have a lone lil' baby too who hatched just this last Friday. We play with him a lot and then at night he is quiet. Although you can hear him/her peeping very quietly to his/herself. There is a stuffed animal in with him/her. There isn't anyone around my area that is selling any baby chicks...soooo s/he will just have to be alone. Poor lil' one.

    Maybe a mirror would help. At least it could see what looks like another chick in with it.

    Your lonely little chick can come stay at my house. I have 2 day old welsummers. If I had one more I'd let you have it as company for your baby.

    I have a little lone one too. He is 1 week old today. He has a tiny stuffed cat and if you reach in to move the cat he runs over and playfully pecks ya on the finger! Very protective of it's kitty cat!
