The guy at the feedstore advised me to not handle the chicks much because it would stress them... so I didn't. Now I'm wondering if I should have handled them way more than I did because they don't like being picked up. I can make them sit on my lap for a few moments, and I try all different things to calm them... they like to eat out of my hands, but that's really it... they yell EEP! EEP! EEP! when I approach...They're 2 month old Silkies, raised in my house. Is this normal? Was I expecting way more cuddleability than I should have? Everyone talks about how their Silkies sit on their laps while they watch tv... and mine run away screaming!
