    Hi I thought I would give my tips for a solo chick and then others can put up their tips as well, or any chick tips.

    Baby chicks crave movement, then they don't think they are alone. These cute flowers wave and sway back and forth to a light shining. this will be nice for a lonely chick. some people put a wind up clock that goes tick tick they like that, Mirrors also help they think they are with another chick

    stuffed animals also help.

    What are your ideas?

    Wee- (whhohee) quietly and vibrate your voice. it means settle down and go to sleep.

    Look- (lok,lok,lok) quickly, means I have something tasty.
