    [​IMG] [​IMG] it started out with three eggs, but only one was fertile, hatched extremely fast, compared to the other chicks i have hatched in the past, it is starting to fluff up now, i love the chooks what is really strange about this chick is that it pipped, and didn't do anything for three hours, then i went over to the incubator and started whistling to it, it actually hatched within thirty minutes, and i am really proud of myself, i didn't (intervene) with this chick i just don't know what i am going to do, when it is at my house alone, and I'm out, i wish i could find at least one chick for it to play with

    Get a small stuffed animal for it, and maybe a feather duster or piece of a feather boa for it to snuggle up inside. Then try to find another couple chicks at a feed store for company, maybe?

    I had 2 chicks to hatch several weeks ago.
    I was giving them vitamin water and accidently
    killed one when I set it down and it upchucked
    and aspirated. Now the one little guy is with
    2 beanie baby roos and he let's us know when
    he wants to be picked up. He is so cudley...
