We bought 5 new Silkie chicks a week ago this past Saturday. The guy we bought them from said they were 2 weeks old so that would make them 3 weeks old now. They have been very skittish and jumpy since we got them home. We try to hand feed and they are not interrested. Our other chicks were hand feeding after a week. Any idea on why the silkies are still jumpy?

Probably just a little scared in the new environment, missing their siblings, different food, many possibilities. Just give it some time and they will come around! Try to figure out their favourite food in the bowl and then hand feed that!

Good luck,
