I have 10 4 month old hens and a rooster. I also have an additional 5 hens that are about a month old. The first batch I didn't handle them much and they run in terror when I come near them. So on this new batch I thought I would handle them on a daily basis to help them get used to me. That's not working either and I have stopped due to possibly stressing them out. I read on and on about how people's hens are so loving and follow them around and jump on them etc. Are my hens still to young? What's the deal?
