I read a word picture of how to pick up and hold a chicken, but it didn't make sense to me. My chicks are about three months old now and I stroke their chests and backs and they often happily roost on my lap or legs. I do not understand how to pick up a chicken and put it under my arm or just what you are supposed to do to snuggle it without frightening the feathers off the bird. Anyone have a video? Word description? I tried one today and it screamed for its life. Thanks.
