Never had chickens before but this spring I am going to get some (just 3 hens for eggs and bug control). Question, I would like for these chickens to be as "tame" as possible as ideally I would like them to be able to free-range in the fenced yard and eat bugs BUT be able to catch them easily and put them back in their coop. Will getting newborns make a difference? Do they bond better straight out of the egg? I plan to keep them in the kitchen initially so they will have plenty of time to bond. Our feed store has a lot every spring but I also know folks that keep chickens (my vet does) so I could probably get hatchlings just as easily without having to mail order.
