    I know this is a long shot, but I need one day old (or two days) chick for our single little baby silkie that has hatched. It is so sad (calling for a friend). Type not important (any kind is fine). I live in the eastern panhandle of wv and will drive 1/2 hour to find a friend for this poor chickie. Thanks!

    I'm more than a half hour from you (probably 1 1/2 - 2 hrs) but I've got bantam cochins hatching as we speak - if you're interested, PM me...

    I wish I could, but it is just too far. I know I'm prob out of luck, but still crossing my fingers I can find someone closer.

    Good luck with your cochins!

    Bump...lol [​IMG] Any luck?? I had that happen and a friend on here pulled through for me, hope you have as good of luck. [​IMG] You can try putting a teddy bear in for now, it worked for me. [​IMG]

    No luck, but we did put a stuffed animal in there. It seem to settle down a little and we are giving it as much attention as we can, so I hope it will be ok.

    have you tried hanging a feather duster in there so the feathers just barely touch the floor? I have heard they go in the feathers and think they are with their mama. Keeps them warm too.

    Sorry, can't help with chicks but thought I'd throw this in as well... I've heard of people putting a mirror in the brooder to keep a single chick from getting lonely.
