    Hello! I have an incubator of eggs that are due to hatch in about 4 days, and I have a few questions. I am hoping to get them to imprint on me, and I've been doing some research on it. From what I see, the first moving object they see will be their "mother". If this is the case, wouldn't they imprint on their other hatching or already hatched siblings?
    Thanks! And if anyone has tips on how to get them to better imprint on me, they would be greatly appreciated! :)
