In my flock, I have 4 Rhode Island Reds (6 weeks old), 1 White Leghorn, 1 Silver-Laced Wyandotte (both 5 weeks old), and 1 Naked Neck (3 weeks old). My 4 Reds are very sociable. The love attention from me and my family, love to be pet and be around us. They have been that way since I got them when they were only days old. The Leghorn, Wyandotte, and Naked Neck are the exact opposite. They are utterly terrified of humans. I have tried to gain their trust by letting them feed out of my hand, but that hasn't worked either. I figured maybe it was a phase that would pass, but hasn't. I have read that these breeds are very friendly and sociable with humans, but I also understand that each bird has their own personality. I was just wondering if anyone else has birds like that. Do they eventually come around to being sociable, or is it typically permanent?
