^^^^ title says it all...
Let 'em go through puberty.
I'm only half kidding They go through phases, just like human kids. A good way to keep them thinking of you as being firmly in the "good" column, though, is little treats. Be known as the food-giver
Treats, lots and lots of treats!!!!
Why do they not love you anymore??
I've had days I think my girls have turned evil. But like Uzuri said, they are just like humans. Somtimes I'll dig them up some worms to snack on. They come running as fast as their little legs can carry them and love me all over again.
mine run away from me like crazy. once i get them and hold em they calm down. but i havent found a treat they like. i have tried noodles yogurt and fruit. but they like moths!! lol i want them to run to me.
Have you tried sunflower seeds, or grapes? My chickens love those.
Sounds like mine. They are 15 weeks old, and some of them started giving me the cold shoulder about a month ago. I got a little galvanized bucket, and whenever I give them treats, I put them in the bucket first. Now, whenever I am holding that little bucket, they are all over me! Some are sweeter then others. Mine LOVE watermelon...
One of the first things that my 15-week olds learned to recognize was watermelon. Its big and they can see it when I set it down. They didn't know what it was at first and ignored it so I left it with them overnight. The next time I brought it out they ran over. Similarly, they don't seem to like it when I lean down to pick them up (perhaps instinct from avoiding predators from above) but once I'm holding them they're very happy. I've found that some are most happy being held close and other prefer to sit on my shoulder (and sometimes my head).
mine wouldnt touch watermelon.
