OK, so everyone on here has pictures of them holding their chicks on their shoulder and the kids playing with the chicks in the yard. how do you do it? The last two sets of chicks I had ran from me all the time and wouldn't let me hold them unless I chased them down. I would spend an hour a day with them, just sitting next to the brooder and picking one up and holding it, then the next one. But every time I reached back in to the brooder they acted like it was the hand of death coming for them. They are all older now (about 10 weeks) and still don't like to be held and I have to chase them to pick them up, even when treats are around. I have one adult chicken (5 mo old) that will sit on my lap, and she didn't do that until she started laying. I have 5 other adults about the same age that I don't have to chase to pick up and they will come around when I have treats, but aren't super friendly either. Is this a breed thing or did I do something wrong when they were chicks? I have a new batch coming next week and I'd really like to get them more people oriented and friendly so please give me some advice!!
