Hello, very excited about our 1 week old silkies. We are first time chicken parents. We've adjusted to each other, and I no longer feel the need to wake up every hour and check on them. We would like them to be part of our family, and want them to be friendly and unafraid. I have tweens, who really would like to hold them and "play" with them, but I don't want to stress out the babies. How much handling is appropriate/and when?
