    Are brooder raise chicks friendlier than hen raise chicks? I've got four inside and one outside and I'm just curious. Any personal experience?

    Only if you play with them daily.
    I only handle my chicks to weigh and leg band them and the brooder raised chicks are just as wild as the hen brooded birds.
