Ours will be officially "2" weeks old on wed. We left them alone the first 24-48 hours, and after that I check on them 3x a day. at least 2x a day, they come out of the bin now and can run around. I've googled "taming chick" stuff, and followed some of the recommended things, like reaching from the side, holding them under your chin or setting them inbetween your boobs in your shirt. (they weren't a fan.) Anyways.... 2 out of the 8 panic if I try to hold them on their back. The other 6 let me, and 3-4 of them actually seemed to fall asleep when I was holding them in my hand upside down. Is that a good sign they are comfortable with us? I'm still learning to speak baby chickens, I've only ever had adults before. We sit with them and they'll hop all over our arms, legs and hang out, although they still seem to like to huddle together, and will knock each other around a lot. I can already tell my litttle Astrid thinks she's going to be the alpha hen - she knocks everyone else off what they are sitting/standing on. LOL Anyways - any recomendations over the next 2-3 weeks on making them friendlier/happier with us? (this will help our next batch that arrives in 2 weeks too.) We put their feed in our hands and while they'll peck at it, Hershey, the all chocolate colored hen sits on my leg so she can attack my freckles.... I'm pastey white redhead naturally, so I have LOTS of freckles.. and she's really determined to pick me clean. It doesn't hurt now - but I don't want her doing it when she's full grown. Any tips to teaching "manners" while your taming them too?
