Friday I went to the feedstore.. and got four new chicks. They are "older." Two Ameraucanas and two Red Sex Links Here they are. They are "skiddish" of humans. I sat in the pen with them for about 45 minutes yesterday, just sitting still, not trying to touch them. They came up to me, I was so tempted to reach out to catch one. But... I just sat there quietly. Then I put my big chickens in the tractor, right next to the baby chicks. I fed the big chickens some lettuce by hand. The chicks were watching intently. I stuck some lettuce in the wire for them, they wouldn't take it until I went away. But, it is a first step. They were kept with hundreds of other chicks their own age in a huge covered area at the feedstore. The only thing they know of humans, is they come with a big net and catch some chicks, and then they are gone. My last ones were tiny babies when I got them so it was easier, they weren't so afraid of me. But, I will keep trying to make friends with them.
