I've read and heard about baby ducks "imprinting" on people before, but I've never heard of a baby chicken doing that. But here's exhibit A: meet Anabel, my baby Patridge Rock. Anabel is being raised very by a broody foster Silkie hen, and she has a few foster siblings being raised along with her. However, when I take the babies and mama out in the yard for a little free range time, carefully supervised by me at this point, Anabel immediately runs straight to me and won't leave. If I put her back with her sisters and mother, again, she makes a break and dashes over to me and stands there peeping until I pick her up. I've never seen a baby chicken behave this way. Have you?
