I'm mostly just introducing myself. I've been accessing BYC for a little bit now, getting as much info I could on raising chickens. My best friend got chickens a couple of years ago, and I was both fascinated and jealous. It took me a couple of years, but I now have a little brood of my own- 1 white Silkie, 2 blue Silkies, a bantam Easter Egger (all 2 weeks old today) and 3 Welsummers (all 1 week old today). I'm enjoying the heck out of them! It seems like every time I check in on them, they've grown and have more actual feathers (and I check in on them a LOT each day)! I do have one question. I've been handling them a lot, but they don't seem particularly fond of being handled yet. In fact, they seem to hate it. Does anybody have some good suggestions for getting them tamed down?
