Well they don't exactly HATE me, but they really don't like being handled at all. I tried several of the treats thing too. Not into it. They won't run from us if we are just sitting there, but they won't sit in our laps or hop on us, don't like being held and don't like being pet much either. When I take them out of the brooder I have to corner them to catch them and pull them out and the poor things chirp like their going to the gallows. They seem terrified, I can feel their little heartbeats quicken instantly. They will get close to us when we are sitting on the floor with them while they are exploring my bedroom, but that's about all the interaction they want from us. Do you think they will EVER warm up to us?
