I Am A Mommy

This little chick hatched from a forgotten egg under the heat lamp after the 7 other chicks were moved. They were over a week old when we moved them and the several eggs left I forgot to get rid of or turn the lamp off. This little one hatched out and is too small and young to go with the others so I am being his mommy, talking to him, cuddling him, cleaning his poop butt, and making sure he stays warm in his box house with a heat lamp. Making sure he eats and drinks and gets lots of attention. I think I am in love.

Boy, what's not to love about that little guy?! ;-)

Oh, we've gone though several "lonely chicks". And they usually end up spending most of their time in my shirt pocket just so they shut up for a little bit. The lonely peeping drives me nuts! :)
Hope your little guy (hopefully girl) gets in with the rest of the gang soon.
