I have twenty chicks, the kids still trying to name them. I have one bird that is bigger than the others. She perches on a box I have in the brooding pen and watches the other birds. If they screw up she lets them know. She not rough but she will let them know.
My chickens are my pets. Handled them from day one. They are about 3 weeks now. I do not handle them as often now. I am able to pick them up without issue to check them out for bugs or injuries and when I sit with them, they all fly up to the edge of the brooder box and visit me. They allow me to pet them and they just stay put.
I love that they are quiet but as soon as they hear me they start talking. They know I bring good things and lots of love along with my cleaning equipment..lol
I went home for lunch today, I was real quiet and caught all 4 by surprise. They were all out of the brooder having a good ole time. Two of them jumped back in the brooder as if they thought I would not notice...LOL
They didn't scatter and try to get away, I was happy with that.
