theyre about 2.5 weeks old and until today they had run screaming to the corner every time i opened the cage. this am when i got home, i opened the cage and reached my hand in and my little austrolorps (sp) came over and gave me an itty bitty peck on my finger nail. she looked up and me, peeped and pecked me again. then she actually sat still while i reached out and touched the side of her neck to pet her. i was so floored! then my other 2 girls came over and had to see what was going on. the blue andolusian let me pet her back as she was walking (not running) away and the buff orp let me touch her without even moving. it was so cool ive been holding them since they came home and it seems like its finally paying off.
