Well I wasn't expecting any of the eggs in my home made bator to hatch after a fairly lengthy power outage, but the only thing worse than having none hatch - was to have only one hatch. And thats what happened. The poor little tyke is now 2 days old and all on its lonesome in the brooder. It already sees me and thinks i could be mum, but clearly I cant be with it 24/7 working full time. I have a teddy in there for it to snuggle into, and am hopelessly attached to it, its name is Waffle and its a purebred Australorp. Just wondering what else i can do to help the little one not feel so alone and isolated? I dont have any broody hens that will take it (have tried with two, both will keep it at night but through the day kick it out and peck it, they've both only been sitting for a few days). I figure it will always be a pet now so hope plenty of human handling is ok, any other tips on how to care for the solo chick?
