    So I have four baby chickens in my house. They are of about four months. I dont even even know if i should call them baby anymore... So whenever i go to see them i always want to touch them and hold them and they dont have any problem with me touching them. But whenever i bring my foot close to them they scream so loud and run away from me. Idk why are they so afraid of my foot... And they are afraid of many other stuff too... like polythene, newspaper, stuffed toys and many other things! So what should i do so that they are not afraid?

    Hi! The fear is normal - chickens are only one step above grass on the food chain, so they are very wary. Still, there are lots of things you can do to accustom them to people, but you'll get better answers if you ask on a regular thread instead of in a learning center article. Try posting your question at and you'll get lots of helpful suggestions!
