New Babies

May 5, 2014

We are attempting imprinting with our newly hatched chicks.  Supposedly the baby chick bonds to the first person it sees and will follow that person around forever.  We got going a little too late with our Easter hens.  Charlie has expressed some disappointment about the relationship.

Charlie: “I was imagining my chicken and I would chase each other around, maybe play some tag around the dining room table.”

With this new batch of chicks we might get that good game of chicken tag after all.

Below: Betsy, Tacy, Tib, Dumps (in memory), and Aunt Sally: just hours old, enjoying kangaroo care (skin to skin..or skin to fuzz in this case).
