    A feather? That one must be over my head, but I do understand the 90% of vocabulary! I'm from WV after all... [​IMG]

    :lau good to know! I think we talked about them being loud. When is the person you hatched these peas for going to take them? Or have you inherited them?

    Good luck with your chick. More good stuff to store in my little brain to watch for. [​IMG]

    A slightly late happy birthday to you everyday- when talking about a feather we are referring to the paid site membership.

    On the imprinting pea chicks thing - our last hatch we had 2 chook chicks, and they were increadably loud if one of us wasn't in sight.

    I'm planning on giving them to him when they don't need the brooder light anymore. Everyone is trying to convince me to keep them but it's not practical until I literally live on a real farm. Not my make believe farm in my backyard! They are cute though. I'm laying on the couch now...one is asleep in my hair and 2 are sound asleep in a baby blanket on my lap! Total silence!

    Turkey poults imprint too. I talk to my eggs as they are pipping, and talk to the chicks whenever I walk into the room the brooder is in. However...I learned years ago NOT to keep the brooder where they can see me most of the time. I keep the brooder in a spare bathroom off my office. I can hear them, they can hear me, but they can't see me until I walk in there. So they imprint to my voice instead of my presence, and even when they are full grown they answer back when I talk to them but they don't do the highly annoying looking for me. If they cheep, I talk back, then they settle down.

    But thanks for the advice on peachicks...I decided long ago that as exotic and beautiful as they are, anything louder than a donkey is not going to be in my coop.
