hi im new to the forum so bare with me if i as silly questions. i have 2 hens, one is 6 months old from a breeder which is more sociable/tame than the original hen i have which is 1yr +... the older hen is very shy and will run away when i walk into the coop or see my presence. (it must of had a hard life prior or been abused in the past. this one decided to fly in my backyard, so hence i kept it and became its owner) so i dont bother trying to train that one, since sometimes its hard to teach an old dog new tricks as they say. once in a while i have the urge of giving the younger one a pat. unlike a dog or a cat, when u reach out to pat it, it walks away. but i can corner this one and grab it...it will flap its wings and *Squark* like crazy... while being held it will try to flap its wings and break free. when i rest it down...it is back to normal again. and hangs around me close by. can anyone share some light on this?...does it just need to warm up to me? and for me to do this more often for it to trust me? im guessing people here have chicksn as pets and tame them?
