    Don't worry. Just raise it with lots of love and you will be his/her friend. I raised a lone duckling once and he grew up okay! What he doesn't know (probably) won't hurt him/her.

    Quote:Today I had one serama chick hatch out of 25 eggs. I bought a feather duster to keep him company. I hope it works. I have two five month old serama's but their probable to old.
    Good Luck with yours.

    Feather duster, novel idea. You just may have to order you some chicks, just kidding. If he cheeps alot, you'll have to carry him around with you all the time or wear ear plugs.........not kidding [​IMG]
