The chick is in a box in the basement. It is about 24" high with the lid flaps up. I had the heat lamp off for a while yesterday. When I went to turn it back on, the chick was sitting on the edge of the box looking at me. I guess it's time for a cover on the box. I didn't think she would be able to get up there yet. :)

Ha! Ha! Yup they surprise you, I've had the same thing happen, chick gone from the brooder and have to search around and look for it.
Its hard during breeding season as everyone wants eggs or chicks. I've had people drive 3 hrs one way to pick up eggs or chicks. I hate shipping as something always happens and its expensive. Still I would put an add on kijiji and get another chick for company for yours. When you introduce lone chicks into the rest of the flock it rarely goes well.

I found some one week old cuckoo maline chicks nearby. I have to buy 6 in order for the owner to bring them to Regina, but she doesn't charge a delivery fee. I suspect I will need a lot larger brooder box. I understand that they grow quite fast.

I changed my mind. They are going to be quite big, and I don't have room for them when they grow out. I also don't butcher. I'll see if I can find something smaller.
