    I know something about chickens, I did a lot of research on them, but when it comes to actually handling them, I'm clueless.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Chickens don't like to be picked up. At least most of them don't. With frequent handling, they will tolerate it, but they will never enjoy it. Definitely follow the links that Michael has left for you.

    Enjoy all your adventures and welcome to our flock!
