    I have found it better to bond with your chicks . Some people say not to touch them to much . Just wash your hands more often . When you go to pickup your chicken do not pull there tail it took over a week for her to get used to me again . :barnie that was terrible . I have also found it better for the first week to keep them on antibiotics
