    Stuarts Draft Va,
    I want to make these chick like having me and my kids around. How much time aday do you think I should spend playing and just holding them? So far my 2.5 week olds are doing well with us all but the ones that are just at a week or so are still not wating us around. So how much time sould I spend with them a day?

    If you spend a few hours a day, maybe 1-2 they should be pretty tame soon. if you can handle them some also they will get used to you even faster.

    Pick them up, cuddle them, get them used to being held. That way they won't mind too much about being patted when they're older. :p An hour a day or even just whenever you have a spare minute or too, and they'll start to get used to thou. Good luck!
