Of my 6 original feed store chicks, they all have different personalities. I can't wait to watch them grow up. They are about 3 weeks old now. Shirley, BO, loves for me to hold her. Don't know if it lack of fear or curiosity, or both. She is the only one that actually runs TO me when I put my hand in the brooder. She will actually straddle my fingers to put her body in my palm to pick her up. When she's on my lap, she's not afraid of anything.. including the dog and cat. Lucky, RIR. She is my DD's baby. No doubt about it. She doesn't mind being picked up by me, but she is the only one who runs to DD. If I try to hold her when DD isn't around (like after bedtime) she spends half the time cheeping and looking around for DD. But Lucky will sleep in DD's hand while she's being carried around the living room. Absolute trust in my DD. She's still sweet to everyone else, but we aren't "her" girl! Rockette, BR. She doesn't run, but doesn't come to me either. She'll sit on my lap, but doesn't really do much. She doesn't really have much of a personality yet. I'm hoping she gets one soon , but my other adult BR were pretty bland personality wise too. For some reason DH just loves them tho. The EEs: Bucky (male). He doesn't like to be picked up, but once I'm holding him he is good. He acts big in front of the rest of them, but once alone with me it takes him about 5 seconds to snuggle up and start quiet little sleepy cheeps. Chirpy (girl) got her name for a reason. She doesn't care to be taken from the rest of the chicks and isn't quiet about letting you know. She was the noisiest day since the day we brought her home and that hasn't changed. She doesn't struggle when you hold her, but she yells at you the whole time. Twirpy (girl) was the smallest of the feed store chicks. She is like Chirpy, but quieter. You can tell being held isn't her favorite thing but she puts up with it. After a few minutes she gets bored and likes to sprawl herself across my leg (well as much as she can for such a tiny thing). I am hoping that the banties will have such distinct personalities once I can start telling them apart.
