After trying to hatch a few eggs only one survived. I eventually want to let it be with other chickens but have read that if they grow up alone they won't be able to socialize well with other chickens. Would it be best to buy a few more babies to kept it company and let it get used to other chickens?

It's chick season!! Get at least two more. If you're limited in space, we've found that 3 works well - that way if one is in the nest, the other two have each other to buddy around with. If you have lots of space -- the more the merrier
