My chicks are ~3.5 weeks old. I'm really hoping that they are all hens. The Buff Orpington is the nicest... She'll easily let me pick her up. The Barred Rock is a little more hesitant. The Ameraucana (as it was sold... Could be an EE) is very leary of me. I have to chase her to pick her up and then she screams like I'm killing her.... I wouldn't be too disappointed if she was a he and then I could replace her with something more docile. She's also very flighty.
