We got our 25 new chicks 3 1/2 weeks ago...and already we are seeing very distinct personality differences in them!! I have 5 each of : BUFF, DOM, EE, RIR, and Brown Leghorns. I treat them all atleast twice a day...little pieces of worms, broccoli, bananas, etc.....None are left out. I let them eat these treats out of my hands My 5 Doms are SOOOOO friendly and loving ...when I am in the pen , all 5 of my Doms will be in my lap the minute I sit down in there! Went out last night and I had one on each shoulder and 3 in my lap!!!! They love me!!!! The Buffs are somewhat friendly. But still distant. My 5 leghorns are coming around more now, after starting out very skiddish.... The RIR are still sort of indifferent...but !!! The EE............( Americana)....they are total snobs ....I can hold a live wiggly worm right in front of them and they all 5 literally run away from it!!?!!! I am totally amazed at how out of my flock of 25, I am seeing such a difference in personalities!!! I dreamed of having a few lap chickens, so I guess I will have atleast 5 of them in my Dominickers!!
