I've seen a few threads with tips on taming chickens, mostly though they were for chickens already in a coop. It's still pretty cold here in the northeast and we just acquired 4 three week old easter eggers. They were handled by kids and adults frequently and lived inside. When we first got them, after they settled, while they were clearly and rightfully nervous they would allow you to hold them. Now, the next day, everything frightens them, and they have started pecking when we hold them. We are first time chicken owners however we've known quite a few people with very friendly easter eggers. it's just concerning they are already hating being handled. Is this something that with persistence will get better? Are they too young for treats to try and coax them into my hand? We were hoping for pets, not just egg layers. Would hate to have chickens that are aggressive when they're older.
