Monday I bought two 2 week old pullets from my feed store and have been keeping them in a rabbit cage. For some unknown reason, these two have imprinted on me and get very upset when they can't see me! If I leave the room they start to peep very loudly, will try to fly through the bars on the cage, trying to follow me. They have the right temp, 90 degrees, in the cage, plenty of chick feed & water and they chirp when they are content and that is only if I am next to them. Last night they would not stop peeping when my family and I went to bed, so I got up, got them out of the cage, put them in the crook of my arm and covered them with a light blanket. They instantly settled down and went to sleep with little chirps. When I tried to gently move them back to the cage, they tried to fly out of the cage and up onto me! Needless to say, I fell asleep on the couch with them in the crook of my arm. I guess I'm mama hen to these two, but my hubby would throw a fit if I sleep on the couch with two chicks until they are old enough to move to the coop with the big girls. Has this happened to anyone else and how do you handle it? Thanks!
