I have an orphaned silkie chick...it did have a sibling but my dog ate one of the chicks...boy did she get in trouble...anyway I have been taking care of her in a crate and she considers me her momma. I took her or him outside to get some sun and to scratch around. Well the chick didnt scratch but she did follow me around and peep. Now this may sound like a stupid question...but how do I teach my chick how to scratch. I can see me outside trying to teach it to scratch by imitating me but the neighbors will think I am crazy. So if anyone out there knows how to teach the chick things that its momma pls tell me....thanks all!!
