    Looking to be a beautiful pullet! :love

    They don't earn their hen or roo badges until they reach 1 year old. ;)

    Wow so they grow very slow. I love this one.. So Afraid of everything it's cute.. I'm trying to hold it more to hopefully calm it down some.

    Get yourself a high value treat.. like meal worms, maybe peas, definitely corn... in SMALL amounts... to add to your personal interaction with no other chickens to compete with. She will shift her focus and calm down much faster. Regular handling around this age does help a lot. Don't forget to chat with her so she gets used to your voice and such. :)
