    I bought 10 eggs and incubated them. Only one survived, so me and my husband went to a store and bought 2 chicks (week /week and half old)to keep the one chick company. So me and my husband get home and give the two little chicks some attention. Well the one i gave attention to, became very attached to me and chirps like crazy and trumys to get out .when in the cage and wants to be on me or held. Will not stop. Im afraid it will hurt its self.

    It will soon flock with the other birds. If the two you just purchased were from different bins then they too are strangers just as much as the hatchling. Peace and harmony will reign in no time.

    Okay..
    But the other two chicks are quiet and getting along. It looks for me and last night cried til 2 in the morning. And the second it heard someone awake this morning it started crying again til i walked by it. Is there anything i can do to help get it to stop crying without holding it?
