    I once rescued a baby chick and he imprinted on me. he thought I was his mother! I'm going to do that with the hatch on the 18th. you should try it! Its the cutest thing ever!
    the chick will follow you around and will cuddle under your chin for protection.

    I don't know if I would want more than one to imprint on me at one time, I have enough trouble stepping over my big fat dog! That is cute that they will do that though. [​IMG]

    is it warm enough to keep it/them outside? if kept inside and it will be allowed to follow you i'll suggest designing a diaper before it hatches.

    We've one and he's cool. about one week old today.
