Didn’t socialize chicks well

My older hens are great. I spent a lot of time with him when they were younger chicks and so now I am able to handle them more.
My new set of chicks I had no time. I barely held them. They won’t even let me come near them. Will they ever warm up to me ?

Mine were the same way, I hardly interacted with them until they were 12 weeks old. I started feeding them on the ground and sat right next to the pile until they were done, within 2 weeks they would fly up from the ground onto my shoulder or head to eat out of my hands. Now they are 8 months old and act like dogs when they see me, they are so tame it’s hilarious. If you work with yours with food then they will be fine.

How old are your chicks right now? I actually don't handle them much when they're super little, but once they're outside and able to get closer to my level ( so I'm something more than big stompy boots), they usually warm up to us pretty quick.
