A little over a week ago, we got our first chickens - a group of 5 chipmunk-looking babies that are about 4-5 weeks old (not really sure) and the next day we got 6 more chickens from someone else that are around 6-7 weeks old (we think). I don't think either group was handled by humans too much before we got them but I know they were some. But, we are having such a difficult time catching them! We have one (barred rock around 5 weeks old, maybe?) that I haven't been able to catch a single time other than the day we got her. The chipmunk (younger ones) are easier to catch than the 2nd group we got - and are actually picking on the older and bigger chickens! When you catch them, they will sit in your hand or lap for a minute once they've calmed down. I worry that one of them will get injured or need help in some other way, and I won't be able catch it and help it. Will they eventually just warm up to us? Or should we work on trying to catch them and handle them as much as possible? Oh, our coop is pretty large - around 20x12 - so they have a ton of space to run from us.
