    Spend time around them but don't push yourself on them. Sit in the run and just let them do their thing with you there. Soon they will get used to you. But understand that not all chickens are inclined to act like pets. It has a lot to do with the breed and even more the individual chicken.

    Give them treats and make a special call when you do so they will come running to you when you call. Do this especially with your roosters. Drop the treat in front of him specifically. He will then offer it to the ladies.

    Feed them. Soon they'll recognise the sound of you approaching and come running. [​IMG]
