    I recently bought 8 chicks. They are terrified of humans... I didnt have this problem with our first flock... Any ideas from experience on how to get them to adjust to us?

    Treats are great! Hard boiled or scrambled eggs and plain yogurt can be fed to them without grit.
    You can also do something simple without using food (if you have an issue with tempting with food). Put a black dot in the center of your hand with a pen or marker. They will come and check it out after awhile. Just, stay still and be very patient!

    Will try both! I want them to atleast trust us and know us before introducing them to our flock...

    Thanks so much!
