    Absolutely not!! Thats how they should be - if they were docile they'd be sick!

    But chickens can still be relatively friendly

    How exactly do you become something higher than a new egg?

    When you reach a certain number of posts you will then be "out of the brooder". I don't remember how many. Just keep posting.

    sprinkle treats on your lap then put them on there and then they will sit on your lap.

    Thank you, that is a good idea! my chicks are pretty friendly because I handled them a ton when they were little, but one of them is very skittish and is high strung. I will try that method, if she lets me catch her! [​IMG]
