I've been raising chicks for years now, and I think there is an easy way to keep them tame and sweet. Usually, I've always used a brooder for chicks, either a cardboard box or a rubbermaid type container. Well, with this batch of chicks, I've decided to use my old rabbit cage. The side walls are wire, with a wire bottom. There is still a heat lamp, and I've made sure they are warm enough. The cage is in the kitchen, which is a high traffic area of the house. So, every day, the chicks see us. With your typical brooders, the walls are high, and the chicks only see you out of the top when you walk by. That can be kind of scary! But with the cage style, they see you all day long. You can also feed the chicks treats through the wire walls, so they learn that every time you walk by, you might feed them. I have to say, these chicks are the tamest ones I've ever had. I know chicks usually tame up after they are older, but these guys are already there! I want to recommend "cage brooding" if you want an easy way to tame your chicks--without having to take them out and handle them daily. This way, they see you so much, that you are not viewed as a big scary monster lol! Here is a photo of my cage setup, with my daughter playing with the chicks. I don't know who is more interested in whom!
