I bought this little belgian bearded d'anver pullet at 8 weeks old at a show. At first I thought that she was just scared because of the car ride and me putting her in her new cage. She is now about 10 weeks old and hasn't calmed down one bit. I was hoping to use her as a junior showmanship chicken, but at this rate, she is way too skittish. The woman I bought her from says she LOVES peas, which she does. She is alone for now since she is too young to go in with the other chickens, so this might be the problem. Any ways to make her more friendly? I've tried just holding her for a long time and that doesn't work at all. Should I get her a friend?
