    Well a friend found a baby chick in the ditch of her house. They do not have chickens but live by a pack of them. She could not see a mom or any chicken close by. So She is bring it to me as I still have my brooder. Should I get a 2ed one from the feed store or will it be fine alone?

    I would get one or two more if you're able to house them. Since chickens are flock animals they feel more comfortable in numbers. You should post a pic!

    Yes get it a freind, it will be happier with company. If they have a bin that is sexed pullets choose one of those, as you will have an extra hen that way.
