    Hellooo, first post! Well, this morning we got our shipment of chicks, unfortunately all of them but two were DOA... it was terrible seeing all those little chickies dead (there were about 15 total)[​IMG] This was our first time ever getting shipped chicks, not a very good first. One, out of the two was in pretty bad shape... I tried my best to save it but just wasn't able to. Here is our only little survivor:

    Don't mind the cat, it was the only stuffed animal i could find [​IMG]. So far she(?) is doing very well... hopefully she isn't too lonely, the stuffed animal and mirror seem to be working. Now, i must think of a name! any suggestions?

    Did you tell the hatchery about this? They should replace the ones that died.

    That is one lucky little chick! I agree what a terrible way to start out. Hopefully you can get replacements soon to give the little one some company. So far you've done everything right. Welcome to BYC

    Aw! I'm so sorry for your loss. That little chick is a fighter, though! Hopefully you can find "her" [​IMG] some friends.
