I was wondering if anyone has had a new hatchling imprint on them or their "hands" as our latest straggler has done? She was the last to hatch out of 20 mixed ameraucana eggs, and being the last she was a little gimpy. Rounded toes and folded little feet; and had a hard time standing upright. She would fall over backwards at times. But otherwise a pirky little chick! Having said that, i assume that the extra handling has made her imprint on us, and she is now inconsolable unless she is sitting in my, or my daughters hands!!!
How long do you beleive she will think we are her mother hen, and how (if) we can un-imprint her! She's adorable, but in the same sence you cannot leave the brooder and her little (loud) cry echoes out for you!!!!!🐣😯
