My chickens have changed in the last few weeks and become very skittish and unfriendly. They used to sit around me when I was in the back yard with them. Now they barely let me come in with 20 feet. Now sure what I did not I would like to have less scared chickens. When I put food in their coop they freak out. Any ideas, suggestions? Also, I should get eggs the first part of Oct. I am hoping for a birthday egg! Do I need to start training them to get in the nesting boxes now or will they figure it out? We are currently using boxes filled with shredded paper. Any suggestions?
