    Hi Folks,
    I'm very new to all this my husband and I just got two buff Orpington's last Monday mainly for the fresh eggs, and I have completely fallen in love with them. I have been reading this site a lot and read the articles about socializing the chicks and I have started doing so, my question is how long and often do you recommend doing so? yesterday and today I have been hand feeding them, letting them hop up in my hand and talking to them as i hold them for just a couple of minutes at a time several times a day... I s this alright, to much or not enough?
