    So due to bad postie....I only had one chick develop and hatch. I prepared myself for a very noisy baby, and stuffed the broody with a teddy, fluffy blanket, feather boa, a mirror and jingly bell.
    She hatched early yesterday morning, but she's so quiet and hardly ever cheeps. She's warm, eating and drinking, so I guess she's happy?
    Will she get louder? Is she just leading me into a false sense of security? lol

    Chickens are social animals; is there any way you can get her a little companion?

    I've got some serama chicks coming next week [​IMG] Do you think this is just why she's so quiet?

    actually, I don't think chicks pay much attention to jingly bells, mirror, boa, stuffed toys, etc. The bells & mirror are more for parakeets, etc, & the stuffed toys, etc, more to keep a new puppy happy, or something. Pretty well wasted on chicks, in my opinion. It needs another chick for company. Good Luck.
