    Unfortunately the door to the room where I keep my incubator was left open just after this little guy and his siblings were hatched and after my dog got in there he is the only survivor. He has been miserable by himself until I ran across a post talking about using stuffed animals to calm a single chick. After putting this small bear in with him it's unbelievable how happy this little chick appears now. Just thought I would share a cute photo.
