    Hi I'm new to BYC and I would absolutely love some tips for bonding with my 2 birds. One is a frizzle and the other one is a silkie. The silkie is more curious and friendly by nature so I especially need tips on helping the frizzle become a little more tame!

    Chicks are like people, they have different personalities and comfort levels. Some may never like being held and others may climb all over you. At young ages, the boldest, friendliest ones tend to be cockerels.
