I have a 2 day old leghorn chick that was abandoned and i found the egg after it had started hatching and so I brought it inside and it hatched in my room and he/she is lonely but has inprinted on me and is old enough that the broodies I have won't take him and the feed store doesn't have any chicks. Do I need to worry about him? Do I need to take care of him like I would take care of 20 chicks? Any help would be great!!

^^^here is his "bator"

^^^and here he is in the egg before he hatched

^^^Here he is just hatched

^^^Here he is again just hatched

I made my broody take some new hatchlings, and her chicks are two weeks old. We just kept trying, and put them under her at night.

I would get him a cuddly small stuffed animal to sleep with.
You just take care of it like 20 chicks, but with less feed, lol
