Okay, I know this is going to sound pretty naive and pathetic, but I'm going to ask it anyways. I'm new to chickens, so I have no shame!! What is the proper way to pick up my chickens?????? I have had my pullets now for 3 weeks, and I have definitely been handling them. They are very comfortable jumping up on me, eating out of my hand, and seem to like to have me around. But everytime I go to scoop one of them up, she completely freaks out!! I'm sure they know I have no idea what the heck I'm doing, and this probably unnerves them, but can it really be this difficult? My girls look at me with dread when they know I'm going to try and pick them up. So anyways, I'm sure there is some general technique, and I know it can't be as hard as I'm making it out to be. Do I just Mama-Handle them despite their resistance? I don't want to hurt them, but I do want to be able to pick up my own chickens for crying out loud!! Any suggestions??? By the way, they are 12 weeks old. Thanks so much for your patience with all my ridiculous questions!!!!
