So, yesterday I was freaking out about my new chick hatching 🐣 and @Baymule @Beekissed @Tre3hugger @messybun all were very helpful.They all said one thing: DO NOT DO ANYTHING TO THE CHICK WHILE HATCHING IS IN PROGRESS!!!! Except @messybun who is very kind and seems to be just as wise. ❤️ Anyway I thought I'd share with you my sweet result of doing nothing. See below picture. The reason why I only have one chick can be answered at:My reason

couldn't get a better picture...she just woke up from a nap.

I’ve had sheep for almost 7 years now. The awesome people here helped me so much! It’s nice to be able to help someone else.

AWESOME! I LOVE not doing anything when it comes to these types of things... hoping nature does it better than anything else (and it's much less costly). I had one born "au naturel" a few months ago and just this a.m. have babies hatching under my sweet broody mamma. It's hard to resist not automatically sticking eggs under a hen when they go brood to see what surprises you get.... the chicken math starts getting out of hand pretty quick. 😊

That seems like an odd mistake for them to make. Was it a substitution? Did they ask you if it was ok before sending them?
