The Little Chick I Found That Doesn't Want To Go Away by slimcassi(m): 7:23pm On Nov 26, 2020
So sometime this afternoon I heard the cry of a chick through my window and the cry was non-stop, I decide to go out and check cos we don't have any new born chick at home, I discovered a carton and in it was this little chicken, immediately I asked wat it was doing in the compound was told my younger brother found it all alone by our fence and he decided to take it in.

Not use to that I told him to quickly return the chick back from where he took it from and he did, now 5mins' later I heard the cry again this tym I was angry cus I tot my younger bro didn't do as I said, so I called on him " didn't I tell u to return the chick back to where u took it from" but I did was his response,... then why am I still hearing it.

We went out to check and there the chick was in the compound roaming about, this tym I took it out myself just to b sure came back inside and closed the gate. Hadn't even settled down in my room to relax wen I heard the chick again 'ah ah wetin come b dis wan now' were my thought went out again and there it was......

To cut the story short I decided to keep it, funny thing now is the chick has bin following me up and down since, if I pick it up it stops crying and if I drop it it start to cry back(you know those sounds they make wen dey don't see their Moda) sometimes I'll drop my hand and it will walk straight into my palm cool and calm. It literally slept in my palm today and looking at it all cute I didn't want to drop it.

So I have decided to keep the chick, it's a native fowl tho. Thinking of a name to give it, can't really say if it's a male or female. Anyways I'll keep u guys posted.

Lol. Yeah I've decided to keep it
About the work load, I think my work has bin cut out for me since it's native unlike the agric (a day old broiler) where u have to keep a constant eye on it, this one can partly take care of itself.

Hello guys good evening

So last night I had a little problem on where to keep the chick for the night, due to rat issues we have at home (didn't want a situation where I might meet a headless chick next day) cry I finally got a place.

I have decided to keep the chick and also my instinct tells me it's going to b a female grin so in 3weeks time check back to see if the op has very bad instincts (anyway my instincts don't lie, lol) so am going to call her; Mira.
Say hello to Mira everyone cool

Everyone is so fond of Mira at home, she follows anybody and everybody at home and once u leave her presence she start to cry. So I had to do the needful make her feel at home. Earlier today I went out to get a little saw-dust, a mudu of vital starter food and some vitamins. For now Mira stays in a carton filled with saw-dust, she hasn't complained yet so I think she's ok with it.

I let her roam the compound freely and so far so good she like it cus through out today we barely heard her voice, it got to quiet to a point I started looking for her, thinking she might have gone out only to see her under a banana plant doing what chickens do best.

Will keep u guys posted, Thanks

Yeah, it is a pullet (that is, a female chick); take good care of her and you will enjoy her.

Lai Muhammed spotted, baba those fowl are hardy even from day old, they survive with or without care, as long as the long arm of predators does not meet it

She spends most of her time under shades provided by flowers at home, and with d setting of the compound i doubt if any hawk or kite will attempt a quick snatch. But dat doesn't mean I won't keep a watchful eye. Thanks

Not quite the case, let's say a week+ after hatching, or probably when that bright yellow of the chicks starts to fade and each individual chick beginning to take its own form (feather colours and pattern) they (native fowl) can literally survive on its own unlike the agric where even a month old chicken still needs a watchful eye. You'll be surprised as to how this natives can survive and from wat age.....

All the same Amen to ur prayer.

Ok fingers crossed tho, cus I was taught to Identify a chicken's gender by its comb at at some point it's beak as well and for me Mira is still too young since She hasn't started developing any comb yet.

Hello everyone,

Good Evening and Happy New month

Update on Mira***

So lately Mira has bin really okay, to think a chick without her mom can fare this long all by herself. It got me thinking, We all need a push once in a while—but hopefully it’s not a literal one, the cycle of life of animals to that of humans is quite different and in some cases (like Mammals) similar.

Right from birth these animals are straight up on their feet fending for themselves and in some cases some get to grow up without the watchful eye of their parents having to face d wild and differenciate btw predator and prey. Unlike a human child that is restless for a whole year.

I guess this predator and prey stuff is hard wired in all animals, what do I mean; you know how wen we were growing up there re certain things not taught to us to b gud or bad bit we just figured it out that this is right or wrong, same applies to animals.....

Mira for example, each time I take her close to Reina (My Dog) that "run away from danger" instinct kicks in, she faces the other direction and is ready to stay as far away from Reina as possible and to think she's just a chick or probably it could be since am small big things scare me but on a second thought I'm big and she's not scared, well I guess nature has the answers.

I just realized I've gone Nat-geo wild on u guys lol, my apologies.

Recently Mira has started posing for the camera,tried taking a shot today and immediately she heard the snap sound she just took her position setting her face to d side and stood still for like 5second. Pics below

Hello Guys,

It's bin a while and Happy New Year to you all. I haven't been able to update due to festive season, the celebration and all that.

UPDATE ON MIRA
First and foremost Mira is doing ok, there were no Hawks and she didn't near my kitchen lol - so the Mira movement can end now wink grin. As we all know the Xmas period has come and gone and we're in the new year and during this time alot happened, some celebrated with family and friends others alone, I happen to celebrate mine with my family and to b truthful paid less attention to Mira.

I felt bad and thought of a way to solve the pending issue and make both parties happy, me and Mira. So I went out and got her a friend, yes u read right I got Mira a friend to help kill the boredom and make her feel lively again. Her new friend's bio will come up later.

She has bonded well with her new friend and both are enjoying each other's company.
