Here it is fall and my husband is finally finishing the chicken house we've talked about since early spring. I've been warned about getting chickens past the chick stage ....they won't be as friendly and eager to be picked up, etc... I doubt that I can find refugees from a children's museum or petting farm where chickens are used to being handled so my question is..... What's your experience on getting older chickens ? Thanks! (I am so excited about getting my hens!!!
