    I got three chicks at The Co-Op last Tuesday. I already had the brooder outside because my older chicks were in it before they moved to their coop. So I set them up on the porch and they have done great! I go out everyday and force each one to let me hold it but it didn't seem to be enough. They are terrified of me and run at the sight of humans. So, I brought them in back in the laundry room so that I can handle them more and they become used to us better. My older chicks (who will be 6 weeks Sunday) come running when they hear us and will find a way to make it in your lap if you crouch down,lol. I want these chicks to be the same way.

    On a side note, I will never again have a small amount of chicks. How BORING are three lonely chicks? LOL My 12 last time were a hoot!


    These are 11 days old now

    Our first batch, the 6 week olds have been SO social since they were probably two weeks old. So I hope I caught these in time. My older ones just love people. I only have two out of the older twelve that aren't social and that might just be a breed thing.

    You have to bribe them to like you, I started giving mine meal worms at 5 days old (with some grit) and now I get mobbed every time i get near them. They peck at my fingers and climb all over my arm when I am trying to change water and food.

    Bring on the treats MOM!!!
