Hi Everyone! We (especially my 10-year-old son and me) have been wanting chickens for 2 years, and finally got our girls a month ago. We joined BYC because it seems every time I google anything chicken, we end up here. Glad to join the flock! 10-year-old has a question. We read the thread on taming your chickens yesterday (from the carousel), and it seems we've done everything wrong. We got 6-week-olds, we touched and held them a lot, and have let neighborhood children in, too. Couldn't stop 'em! Our new pets are the talk of the 'hood! 3 of the birds are varying degrees of skittish, and one (the buff orp.) is quite docile and friendly. Is there anything we can do to encourage the others to be more docile? Thank you!
