    So today, one of the BR's was being picked on. I went to the hen that was being the bully, picked her up and just held her. I sat down and just held her. I led her go after a minute or so. Well, the BR that was being picked on, came over and jumped on my knee. Then the other one jumped on my knee. Then they cuddled in my arm/lap for a bit. They occasionally looked up as in thank you :)

    Then they jumped on my shoulders and as I was snapping a pic, one let me know how much she loved me with a good luck poop haha.

    I've had them for four days. The BR's are friendly already and the others are warming up to me and not running away as quick. They're settling down some. I'm hoping by Saturday I can reach down and pick any of them up without them running away.

    I'm liking these chickens :D
