We are new to chicken raising and have had a rough start. We started with 17, lost 4 to hawks (presumably) and 10 to a raccoon. We have 3 or our original batch, now 8 weeks old (Please rest assured we have made changes and reinforcements to our coop and run since these attacks). After the raccoon attack we got 5 pullets off a close friend who had the same breed right around the same age, give or take a week. Our original 3 birds are awesome. They are like dogs, the run up to fence to great you, they jump right on you when you go in. Let me pick them up, etc etc. The other 5 are very stand offish and after 3 weeks, they dont come near me. I have tried hand feeding them. Most will eat of out of my hand but are very jumpy, and will scatter if they see you reaching towards them. My question is, how can I get these chickens to socialize and be comfortable with my family and I?
