In the Brooder
- Jan 17, 2021
So, I am new to chickens.( But the addiction is real!) I got my first set of chicks (barred rock, easter eggers and silkies) just 2.5 months ago (they are almost 12 weeks old). And a friend gave me a few little bantams that are around a year. And I recently acquired some silkie hens. I know I’ve read BR and the EE’s can be stand off-ish (and I know that can always vary from bird to bird). I got the silkies because I was really wanting some cute lap chickens to love on. But, ALAS, EVERYONE HATES ME. Someone help this newbie out. Is it their age? Or are none of my chickens going to hop up into my lap and waddle over to me to see what’s going on? Everyone RUNS. No one wants me to even stand close to them out in the run. And when I catch one they protest loudly. So is there any hope? Am I being dramatic? Just bummed I guess. I just want to be loved!! Haha. Pic if my newly acquired naked neck who, you guessed it, also hates me.
