Sorry if this is a repeat and covered somewhere else, I searched but came up blank. I want to buy some chicks to raise as pets, ideally ones tame enough to end up actually wanting to be or liking to be handled or touched. I'm looking mainly at silkies. Here's my question: Is it best to buy a chick that is a few days to just a couple weeks old in this case? I'm seriously wanting to get some silkies from a breeder who has been super helpful and has beautiful chicks but they will be 3-5 weeks old when I get them. Will this make them less likely to want to be handled or bond with my family in the long run? Thanks I hope I phrased my question in a understandable way edit to add: the chicks in question haven't been paid special attention to up until this point they have been picked up on occasion but that's all.
