Is this normal behavior? I got two ee named olive and ellie. Olive and her sister are the only ones I didn't t raise from baby chicks. I got Olive at 7 weeks and she is now 11 weeks old. Her sister and her were very scittish when i got them. Her sister Ellie has calmed down since then. Ellie will eat out of my hand, let me pet her, but doesn't like me holding her which is fine. Olive on the other hand just started eating out of my hand, wont let me pet her and doesnt like to be held. She will calm down after a minute when i pick her up though. We just moved all our chickens into the coop 2 days sgo as my husband just finished it. Ever since she went in there when she sees me she starts puffing up and running and/or jumping at me. Why is she doing that? Will she be like that forever? She has started randomly doing it to the other chickens too, but not like she does at me.
