We brought home a day old Ameracuna and a Buff Cochin chick about 2 months ago. From day one the Ameracuna has been really flighty and hard to catch, even in the brooder. The Buff Cochin is also harder than any of the other chicks I've ever hand raised, but not as bad as the Ameracuna. 2 weeks ago I finally moved the little ones out of the house and into a pen in the shed. Now, after 2 weeks there and lots of time free ranging in the yard, I finally have them staying overnight in my big coop with my only mature hen, a year old Red Sex Link. Everybody seems to be getting along fine and dandy. A big bonus is that the Ameracuna and Buff Cochin seem to have settled down a lot this week. For the first time ever they came running to me when I walked out with their food this morning. These girls are supposed to be my kids pets, and now, hopefully the kids will actually be able to touch them soon. But I still can't get the birds to cooperate for a decent picture!
