Heya! I've been reading BYC on and off and I'm super excited to be a part of the group now! We got 6 chicks 2 weeks ago and our girls (hopefully haha) are starting to get their feathers in! I know two of them are Speckled Sussex but I'm sure I'll be posting in the What Breed? forum soon to find out the others. My hubs is building our coop and is nearly finished with it. I'm ready (as is he I'm sure) to get them out of the garage and into our back yard! The chicks are doing great but I'm wondering if I'm not holding them often enough? Generally when I go out in the morning and evening to change their water is when I pick a few up and hold them, talk to them..they're still running away from me and are pretty angry sounding when I finally catch one. Is this normal behavior or should I be holding them more often to get them used to us? They're pretty chill when I hold them and pet them. Looking forward to get to 'know' you all!
