    Hi! I have 36 chicks and they are about 3-5 weeks old and they are really easily spooked. I was wondering how do I calm them down. Anything will help! Thanks![​IMG]

    I had the same issue, but I started feeding them from my hand and it helped most of them warm up to me. Also when I come to them I always start talking before they say me so they know I am coming and I try not to come from straight over top of them as they have instincts that predators come from directly overhead. So I usually get down to their level as much as possible.
