I think mine hate me. I've had them for a month and a half now, they were so little and cute! I think they are a beautiful breed, I plan on keeping them. But they don't like me. They don't let me pet them, or hold them. I have a alot of pullets, and one cockerell. They're giant blue cochins, a few black and the roo is white with grey spots. So the roo is almost 15 weeks, while the girls are around 12 weeks. When I first bought them, the roo was 6 weeks and the girls were 4 weeks. I spend alot of time with them. But when I come into the run they all run away I recently bought a few more younger girls and some new hampshire reds. The nhr's love me! They jump onto my lap and use me as a roost ^.^ My older hens used to ther same when they were young. I can hand feed the little ones too! I can hand feed the cochins too, but they're skiddish and they peck too hard. One of the black ones broke the skin before. I give them treats and I try to show them that I'm good by having the older hens jump on my back and petting the hens, but they don't respond to that. However they do respond when I am able to pick one of them up and the one I pick up reacts like I'm hurting it, by making loud screeching noises and flapping it's wings. Once that happens I noticed they all stop and stare. What am I doing wrong? Did I just get the wrong breed?
