    I have two what I believe 8 week old Pekins and they are on the unsocial side. Any advise on how to socialize them so that when I get my harnesses for them they will be fine when I touch or pick them up? I go into their coop every day and pet them and pick them up but nothing seems to work. I even feed them from my hand.

    Lots of time with them on their level letting them come to you.
    Go sit in their pen with a book one afternoon and randomly toss them snacks.
