    Do orphaned chicks have any different needs that chicks that never knew their mamma? i have two who lost their mom, and their getting along just fine ( about 2 weeks old). wondering about bonding and such.

    I'm no expert, but I don't think it matters too much. Think of all the chicks that are hatched in incubators or chicks that are mailed from hatcheries. They're all orphans.
