Does anyone have any ideas on how to get my chicks used to me? I have 9 little chicks that are 5 weeks old. They are all silkies, and are supposed to be mostly pullets. We got them at 1 day old, and I admit that with a 4 year old daughter and a sick hen inside that house that I have been nursing back to health, I haven't been able to spend as much time with them as I should have. Anyway when any of us get near them they chirp LOUDLY and all run into a corner. Then they try to climb on top of each other to get the farthest away from us. I've tried using treats, and they won't even try them. Even if I lay fresh fruit and veggies in their brooder they avoid it like that plague. Like I'm trying to kill them with treats! Can anybody give me some suggestions? My older chickens are very gentle and it upsets me greatly that these do not trust us.
