Say that I have raised chickens from the egg. I teach them how to eat their chick starter, I cuddle with them, play with them, etc. The thing is, you never know about hatching eggs so I'm going to buy more than I need. If I get too many I have to let some go. If I stop playing with a baby chick when it's about one week old, would it completely stop imprinting on me when it's, say. about 3 months old? Any help is appreciated!
PS, I'm asking this again so I can get more of a diversity of answers.
