I have an Americauna Roo, And Barred Rock, RIR, 1 americauna hen and 2 others that Idk what they are. I got an incubator and successfully hatched 9 out of 12 chicks, and then this second batch (Still in the process of hatching) Is currently 17 out of 22. I want chickens that I can simply walk in the cage and pick up, chickens that trust me. Now, My adult chickens don't let you touch them (Except for this one RIR hen) And my first batch of chicks, where once you stick your finger through their door, they all flee in terror, mowing each other over. I would hold them alot as babies, but I don't know what i could have done wrong. Now my firned on the other hand has hatched around 60 some chickens and you can run at them and growl and bark and just SCREAM and they don't budge. At all. You can pick them up and throw them around repeatedly without them budging, and they are all hybrids as mine are. Now, Before i ruin this second batch, can someone please help me as to tell me how to correctly tame my chicks to were they trust humans?
