So I have 6 new chicks. I've had them for a week now. 4 of them are just over a week old, not quite 2 yet. They were of course ok with me handling them. Now they are getting a bit skittish. My other 2 are silkies and were 2 weeks when we bought them, so about 3 now I'm guessing. The woman I got them from told me that they had been under her broody hen, so they hadn't been handled at all. They are very skittish. I've tried to spend some "quality time" with them. They've even taken a nap next to me, but when I approach them, they freak and if I want to catch them you kinda got to chase them around. I'm sure all this is normal, but I guess my question is, should I give up? Or keep trying to handle them? And what will be the "norm" for them later on. Will they ever be used to me coming around, or will they always be scared of me? I want "pet" chickens. I don't expect them to like, go on walks with me, but to not be frightened of me when I come in to collect eggs or whatever later in live would be great.
