LF 1 day old to 1 week old chicks - any bantam breed

Post by Jaye » Thu Jun 25, 2020 5:58 pm

My bantam d'Uccles hatch was a car crash: One lonely chick came out alive (it's day 21, and there's been no signs of life in the other three eggs since the first chick hatched on day 20 early AM. No pips, nothing. I blame the humidity spikes over the past week in part; I couldn't get the humidity stabilized. Probably mostly my fault, although both my incubator and hatcher do suck. Anyway, long story not as long, I am looking to buy a buddy for my little one. Can anyone give me a lead on someone who has recently hatched bantam chicks?

Thanks, @kenya. A Silkie would be great, but I'm SE of Ottawa, so a little too far away from you, I think. :-(

Thanks, @Kbr42 . Unfortunately I am not a Facebook user. Maybe I should bite the bullet and join ...
However, I contacted the person that I bought the eggs from yesterday, and although he didn't have any d'Uccles chicks, he did just hatch out some Ameraucanas, so I bought a chick from him this morning and brought it home. I introduced them to each other about 15 minutes ago and they seem to be getting along so far.
