    hello, well my first chick hatched, so fast one minute no pip ans half hour later he came out like a bullet, never seen a chicken do that. im soooo exited, hes so small and peeping, hes not dry yet but hes standing, i hate for him to be alone in the brooder, hes resting his head on another egg, its day 24, the first 6 should have hatched 2 days ago, still 12 more to go. hes been kicking my other eggs around, should i give him a stuffed toy or anything in the brooder, i do have new silky chicks in the coop but ive read not to mix them, wow, my first pheasant chick,

    I give my lonely babies feather dusters. If you give them a stuffed toy just make sure that it has none of that fishing line type stiching hanging loose. It gets tight on toes easily when they are snuggling it.
