    I just love chickens you know. I don't know what it is about them that makes me so "obsessed" with them.

    My husband bought me an incubator for my birthday. Since January, we've gone from 45 chickens to 102.

    It seems to me that chicks go through a phase where they are just skittish about everything. I think it's a defense mechanism to help protect them from danger as they start exploring their world. Even my super-duper-lovey-dovey chicks that I hatched myself are acting a little nervous around me lately. After I've sat with them a bit, they relax and go back to jumping onto my head and attacking my ponytail like usual again.

    Just take your time with your babes and be patient with them. They'll learn to trust you. :)

    I have found a great source of information about chicks and raising chickens on this site. http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/p/chicken-resources-directory.html
    Hope this helps!

    I have a question. I bought 2 Buff Brahmas at Tractor Supply. Are they standard or bantam variety? Is there a way you can tell?
