Hi! I am new to the site, as a member. My husband and I are raising chickens for the first time, my girls are 18 weeks old. We don't have a huge space, and are in town so we just started with 2 to get in the swing of things. 1 barred rock, and 1 silver laced Wyandotte. We have used this site searching for info throughout the whole process since we got them when they were 2 weeks old and just decided to join in on the fun! And while we are kind of in the waiting game for the first egg to come in the next month or month 1/2 I do have a question. Is it normal to have gotten the chicks the same time, handled them the same and gave them both the same amount of attention to have one that is very friendly, and loves to come say hi and be pet, and the other is totally against it, she will come close and eat treats out of our hands, but if you even reach in her direction she runs away. I just thought it was strange since they have been treated the same. Is it a breed thing? If it matters the calm tame one is the barred rock, and the flighty one is the Wyandotte. Thanks so much!!!
