Tried to search for this topic in an already-established thread and couldn't find it, so am hoping this topic hasn't already been covered extensively! We have five chickens: a Dominique, a Faverolle, a Bantam Modern Game (?), a Welsummer, and a Speckled Sussex. I have no idea how old they are, but am guessing between two and three months. Although none of them is aggressive, they aren't particularly friendly either (they weren't baby chicks when we got them). They are really hard to catch and don't like being held. They haven't started laying eggs yet, but is it possible that when they do they'll be more friendly? Their personalities aren't really a problem (although the kids would like friendlier birds), but it would be more fun if they liked to be held more often. Thanks for your time! I've been finding this forum really helpful.
