    Ok so I recently got 4 chicks (2 leghorns, black star, red star) they all get along perfectly fine. I can pick them all up and maneuver them without them causing trouble. The black star I have though squawks and peeps and flaps it's wings and just plain old freaks out when I pick it up. I've heard the theory that when a chick acts like that its a 'sign' it may be a rooster. Is that really true though?

    I have no idea if that is true or not, but I do think that some chickens are just friendlier and others more skittish.
