I'm a first time chicken mom and we have had our four since they were two weeks old (they are about 8 weeks now). I'm so new at this that the only thing I can say about my chickens is that two are white and two are brown. It seems like no matter how much we are around them or work with them, they are still jumpy. Out daughter (7) has spent lots of time sitting by them and would really love to hold them but they will have no part of it. Thank you for any thoughts or advice!
