    We had a new chick hatch last night. I had to help it hatch because it pipped, partially zipped and then somehow turned upside down. It is so far an only chick as the one other egg in the incubator is iffy. Now, my husband refuses to put the chick down. Granted the chick is the cutest we've had yet but the chick will never learn anything if it is being held constantly.

    Hubby's side: He says it's the chick that won't put him down! and yes she(?) will learn to walk, talk and dance. He has named it Titch.

    This is Titch. I'm holding her but I had to wrestle her from my husband first. [​IMG]

    Mucky Puppy use to be my husband's nickname for me. Now he calls me the Pooper Scooper because of all the chicken poop I now scoop up everyday. Last picture of Titch.

    Notice the bandage on one of her feet. She had curled toes on that foot and that is how we are straightening it.

    Quote:Thanks, I'll let hubby know. He is much better at picking out names than I am. When I was a 13 and my mom was pregnant with my youngest brother my mom and dad said that we (the sibs and I) could name him. I first wanted to call him Robin Hood. They wouldn't let me. But they let me use the second part of my second choice for his middle name. It was Arthur. Unfortunately they wouldn't allow me to use the King part. [​IMG]

    Who imprinted on whom?

    That is one cute chick, though. I'd probably take her to work with me.

    The pictures do not do her justice. Her fluff is not really like the fluff that our other chicks had. It is more like expensive velvet: short, thick, soft and softly shimmers in the light. She is very loving also. In the pic of her on the table (second photo - out of order), she was walking across the table to get to my hand which I had rested on the top. That is why in the first photo she is in my hand. She kept trying to get to us and we were worried she would fall off.
