I see a lot of you post pictures of you or loved ones holding a chicken. My flock is around 24 weeks old. They come a running when they see me outside, and they have a lot of (I think?) endearing vocalizations, but there's not a one that I can get to allow me to touch them, let alone pick them up. I can get some of them to eat scratch and feed from my hand. I didn't handle them unless needed when they were chicks, and have done nothing that should make them shy away. I really don't care if I can hold them or not. In fact, unless they required some sort of first aid, I'll never handle them. I'm just wondering why they seem so skittish?
