    Some chicks are just weird like that, dont take it to personal. Do you feed them out of your hand? That might show them that you feed them, they don't feed you! At least not yet!

    Ok! I've noticed that there is one Wyandotte that that will walk on my arms etc. I guess I will have to work with the BRs they seem to just be a more wild bird

    Exactly! Just work with them and they should warm up as they grow up!
