I have 3 Golden Comets approximately 1 1/2 years old. I got them when they were about 1. I love my girls! Being a newbie, I chose older chickens vs chicks. They are really sweet and come to me when I call them, with their funny chicken run. I would like to be able to hold them and handle them without them panicking. Any suggestions? Right now, it is approximately 20 degrees out so I go out and talk to them for a little bit but am not spending the time with them like I do in the warmer months. Also, does anyone know the average laying age of Golden Comets?
