Hi all, We have 5 chicks, now a little more than a month old, just installed into their coop/run after a month in our bathroom nursery. We have had them since they were 1 week old, and have handled them, held them, played with them and loved on them steadily since the day we brought them home. We feed them meal worms as treats from our hands and give them nothing but steady, positive attention. And yet...they hate us! Each day they all go increasingly more berserk when we pick them up....screaming, fighting, scratching like crazy. They've become skeptical of our presence and will often desperately run screaming from us when we enter the run. Is this just a phase they are going through? Are they just the equivalent of chicken teenagers, rebellious and ornery at this stage in their lives? We have two Barred Rocks, two Sex Links, and a Rhode Island Red. Do they calm down in henhood? Will they soon appreciate us as the source of all good things? Please advise, I think I'm getting a complex.
