    We have four 4 week old chicks, and we got them from someone who kept them in a shed. So.... They are not used to being around humans. Are there any tricks for getting them used to us, or at least not so terrified when we walk into their room??

    We had them in the living room, but we have two children under three years. And they are loud (kids, not birds) so we moved the chicks to the laundry room. Will they warm up to us in time? :/
