In the Brooder
- Apr 24, 2010
So i am pretty new to raising chickens.... My first 6 chickens are very friendly and basically come to me when i call them.... the next 6 are a lil skiddish when i try to round them up... I know i handled the first 6 alot more than the 2nd 6... Is it that the 2nd set wasnt handled as much as the 1st set that they are skiddish? or could it be their breeds>>> The first 6 are orpingtons and austalorps... the second are speckled sussex and white bantams.... I have more under a heat lamp now... How much should i be holding them and playing with them to get them to be friendlier than the speckled and the bantams? The next 10 are mixed between easter eggers, wyandottes and barred rocks...
