I ordered 4 chicks and the company threw in 7 extras which they said were males. The 4 I ordered are: (standard size) Wyandotte, female (standard size) Ameraucana, female (she's not as bad in the skiddish department...still not nearly as friendly) (bantam size) Silkie, ? (bantam size) light Brahma, ? All the "extras" they threw in are so friendly, social, and curious, while the others are very skiddish. The chicks are all about 2 weeks old now, and the extras are all yellow, but I'm not sure what breed. I'm know that in the animal world, generally males make more loyal, friendlier, etc pets...but that's usually apparent when they're older, you know? So, just curious...is it the same with chicks, or do you think it's the breed? They've all been moved to the outdoor coop now, where it's warm during the day, lamp goes on at night. It has a hinged top door on top of the external nesting boxes. When I lift that up, the yellow extras all fly up to sit on the side....they are not afraid of me at all. While the others hang out as far back as possible. WIll they come around eventually? I hate that the ones we're keeping are the skiddish ones, while every single 'extra' is friendly and fearless! BTW, anyone near Syracuse, New York that would want these friendly little chickies, lol?
