To summarize: I had one lone egg hatch on Thursday. EE probably. I dont know what kind it is- it was a lone egg I got from my b-i-l's . An olive colored egg, has yellow legs. My daughter kept that baby company until my lone silkie egg hatched on Monday- well, Monday night, before the baby was acting normal enough to be put in with the Thursday chick. We were very excited to have this chick be friends with the lone chick. Company- no stress, a friend...no more crying until held- baby chick. WRONG. The EE baby does NOT care. It wont stop peeping for my daughter. The temps are right, there is food, there is water. A stuffed animal and a mirror. And best of all, COMPANY in the brooder. All night long...peep peep peep peeep and pacing to get out of the brooder. Once held, it quiets down and goes to sleep. I refuse to allow my ten year old to sleep with the chick- too many things could and would, happen. Besides that, i have cats who would be happy to take that chick off our hands. However, at midnight last night, I was tempted. Who would think a little chick could keep an entire household awake all night? It began to sound worse than a smoke alarm. I covered the entire cage so it cant see out. The top is not covered- so it wouldnt overheat. I made my kid turn off her teevee so there was no light, no sound, nothing in the room....peep peep peep peep....no teevee to drown that out. lol. When you take that chick out of the brooder, the little Monday silkie baby starts peeping. Any suggestions? It is going to be a VERY long next few weeks until it can be moved OUT.
