    i dont hold me chicks alot b/c it seems to stress them out. when i put my hand in the brooder they run to the corners and try to stay away. but if i do pick one up it feels like it is trembling in my hand like it is so scared it shaking. is this normal? should i handel them more of leave them alone.

    My chick does the same sometimes, vibrates, and I hold her quite a lot, so I shouldn't worry about it.

    They may enjoy it more if you lie down right on the floor with them and play with them that way. They will probably be curious about you and romp all over you!
