Ok, I know this is totally ridiculous. I got 6 pullets 5 days ago, and they're about 10 weeks old now. Every time I approach, they do the "Run away!! Run away!!" thing. And run away. They will approach me for grapes, but they just grab them and, well, run away. They do NOT like to be held. I sit in the run with them, and they huddle in a corner, until we all get bored, and they fall asleep. I'm starting to take it personally! I keep reading stories, and seeing pics of these super friendly chickens that sit on people's laps, etc. Do you need to raise them from chicks for them to be this tame? Or do I just need to chill, and give them time, and quit being so impatient? Again, I know this is goofy, but I can't help myself!
