Most f my flock came from the free rangers at my work. Which are very feral chickens. I bought 3 "purebred" chicks today who are so much easier to handle, less flighty, and more approachable. Do "feral" tendencies carry in genetics in chickens like they do in most mammals? Tips on getting my mutt chickens more friendly? I've had them since they were two days old, and have tried to handle them daily, at least every other day. They scatter when I approach, freak out when I toss any feed to them, and scream.murder when I do catch and hold them. Ideas?
