My question is this. Early bird has started to imprint on me. Cries when he's alone or when I leave the room. I have 5 grown WH I've tried leavinghim in their pen for up to an hour, everyone's curious about him but too scared to get close. Our worst case scenario will be early bird will hatch out as a single duck be attached to humans and wind up indoors and alone for most of the day as we work 6 days a week in town.
Looking for any advise. Should I go for more heart breaking tough love and stick him in the run, or am I over thinking this whole thing? It's best for him that he's friendly with humans but knows he's a duck. As of this post he's 3 days old
