Oh, man, I thought it was just mine.
Nearly impossible to catch. Right now they're "cooped" up in their (admittedly big) coop and run, until I have a ranging paddock setup that I am more confident will contain them. On the other hand, the Naked Necks and New Hampshires come up to me and let me pick them up.
I still find my cream leg bars quite friendly - it's just that they are like cats that way. Exactly like trying to catch a cat when you need to give her medication (vs. them coming and sitting on your lap JUST when you don't want them too...). Too smart for their own good.
Cats. They're the cats of the chicken world.
