I have some that are friendlier than others but I have been going out and sitting with them in the evenings. The tamer ones come up and walk around me and the ones that will let me hold them will come right to my hands after they have looked around for something to snack on. I do have benches similar to the wrought iron benches you see in parks and some folding chairs but I have found that the closer to the ground I sit, the more comfortable they are with me. I do refuse to sit on the ground, I would need help to get up. LOL I have some old milk crates and the floor of the coop is about 12 inches above the ground so sometimes I sit there. They seem to like for me to be that close to them.
This is so true. I find that when I wear a skirt out by the run, they act like I am a flying predator coming at them. I have had my adults since they were 3 days old and the rest right from the incubator but they all seem to act the same at given ages.Mine are friendly and tame, but have had them since they were 3 days old. They are interested in the human no matter what if you hold the treats. But if you get down to their level they are more relaxed, get closer with no treats offered. I did sit on the sand a few times but much prefer to sit on an upside down bucket.
They have instincts of fear from the skies and that's why I think they prefer to be with us if we are on their level.
