I have one, my only drake, that is somewhere in between. If I talk nice to him and he isn't off chasing tail, he'll stand still and let me pet him. Sometimes I just can't resist and I scoop him up. He gets settled and doesn't mind...much. I've also had my females wander off to the side of the coop that's against the tree line while we're always on the other side. They let me pick them up then and carry them back to the rest of their group.
