    So I have 5 BC chicks that are 2 weeks old today and they are so afraid of people it isnt funny. I also have some other chicks with them the same age and now they are crazy with the BC. What can I do to make them nice and friendly?

    Spend a lot of time with them. Take a stool, bucket, chair or something out to sit on with plenty of treats. Chickens are creatures of habit and like routine. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
