This is our first go at raising chickens so everything is new to me. Our eggs hatched on the 17th of Oct. and I’m fighting to stay ahead of the answers before the questions come up. I was watching a video on YouTube on sex determination. The woman was holding the chick, gently flipping it around and here is what freaked me out. She sat the chick down next to her on the table and he just stayed there. If I did that anyone of my 11 would tear off in ant direction clucking their little becks off. What's the deal with that. I’m always calm around them, I don’t make sudden moves, I speak in a soothing voice, I sing to them quietly. Heck I bring them fresh food and water. Why don’t they trust me. I would never hurt them and it makes me feel bad that they think I might. And it’s not just my feelings at stake, when I fluff up or clean the brooder, I’m afraid their going to have a heart attack. Now I may be being a little dramatic in saying that but at the very least, that can’t be good for them. Any comments. How do your guys chicks react to you.
