    Okay I need another baby chick and can't find any locally and maybe I can order like 3 from a hatchery? I will pay the extra I just need a companion to this loud chick. My roo died and we tried to hatch 5 eggs but the other 4 didn't work out so now I have this lonely chick. Any suggestions are very welcome!

    I've read that some members put a little stuffed animal in with their lone chick. Maybe that will help. Then come spring you can get 1 or more chicks from a farm store.

    Meyer Hatchery has a 3 chick minimum, at least, depending on how far or close you are from their hatchery. I've read really good reviews about Meyer and I am ordering 15 chicks from them for the first time this year. My Pet Chicken is also a good hatchery, though I have never ordered from them before. They get their chicks from Meyer Hatchery, though, and they are more expensive than Meyer. I would definitely go with Meyer Hatchery, but is your choice! Good luck!
