    I am going to ignore the rest of the site so you guys won't have to worry any more. Thanks to everyone that worried about Mike & I over the last couple of weeks. It is looking like he will have to go to the ER in the morning if I can't get him to eat something.

    Too cute. They're eating side by side. The chick is following the silkie around and you know how they wipe their beaks to get them clean? The silkie done it and then the chick done it lol. This is great!

    Oh so sorry Enola, hope he gets better soon. What is causing the lack of appetite?

    That's what imprinting is. The chicks brains are wired to copy what they see. The broodies make a special "this is good food!" noise that the little ones respond to also. I've taught chicks what is good to eat by making that noise and tapping my finger like a beak!
