I have 6 pullets that are 7 months old and now they walk up to me and peck me and act as if I’m not some mean human but one of them. They didn’t act like this as chicks. They were scared and freaked out even when I looked into their brooding bin. Luckily as they matured and came out of the brooder, they slowly turned into the friendly, happy chickens they are now. But it had taken a while for them to BECOME so friendly. I wanted them to enjoy being around me as chicks. Now I’m getting 4 polish chicks in the first week of April, and I don’t want to have to wait until they’re 4 months for them to be comfortable around me. I will be raising them in the same set up, but I want to try some new bonding techniques. I’m also going to try and get them outside earlier in their life since our harsh winter is starting to fade away here. Any tips, techniques, or opinions on having my chicks being more comfortable with me at an early age is appreciated!
