    Zephyr is now a week old and has adapted very well (too well probably lol) to being an only chick. He/she is spoiled rotten and has made friends with imaginary chicks in the mirror and all my cats who enjoy watching chick TV while lying next to the warm brooder box. Thankfully, for my sanity [​IMG], I have 11 more eggs in lock down right now so hopefully by the weekend little Zephyr will have some real chick friends because I'm pretty sure at this point he has no clue that his is a chicken lol.

    So cute and spoiled rotten. I had a lone chick. His name was lampshade. Zephyr is much more interesting.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I to had a lone serama chick that my friend hatched. Sadly he didn't care about a tuff of feathers and only wanted a hand to cuddle with [​IMG] lucky my broody that didn't have any of the shipped eggs adopted him.

    Looks just like yours but just missing the spot!

    So [​IMG] cuddled, napping against your hand. [​IMG]

    I raised a lone chick for a bit, his name is Marilyn - he is now 16 months old and still my "baby".

    They sure steal your heart!

    Awww, what a cutie-pie! [​IMG] I'm glad he'll have friends soon. I raised a completely lone chick once in the middle of winter, and once she was old enough to go outside, it took her a good six months or year to work out the chicken social system and become comfortable with the life of being a chicken. She's fine now, but I certainly would rather not do that again.

    Great name, by the way--I have a parrotlet named Zephyr! [​IMG]
