I am new to raising chickens. I researched everything on the BYC site before getting my babies. I got 2 BR,2 black sexlinks and 2 golden sexlinks. Born 3/18/10. I love them, they follow my daughter and I around the yard. They even sneek into my house when the door is open. Amber-one of the goldens- will even let me hold her while we watch TV. I got 4 more chicks May 3. I think 3 Rhode Island Reds and 1 Brahma? I think one of the Reds is a rooster! I was reading the Rhode Island Reds need to be held more to tame them? I want them to be as sweet as my other babies, any advice would be appreciated.
