We just brought home 5 baby chicks 2 - two week old Light Brahma 2 - 4 day old Golden Laced Wyandottes 1 - 4 day old Araucana We've had them home for two days now and they are getting along great. We have been petting, holding them, trying to get them to eat from our hands, but they are still very skittish when I reach into the brooder, and can't wait to be put down after holding them. The two Light brahma have good reason- they had dried feces on their toes that I had to soak in water and scrape off - but the others have had nothing but gentle handling. Of course we'll keep trying to hold them, and play with them - but is it expected that they would want little to do with us so soon after being brought home? Does it take a week or a few for them to warm up to human handling? Also - we've given them a few worms to eat from the garden - it is a good idea to give them grit (parakeet grit) once we introduce treats like this?
