My chicks are 3 weeks today... I have their brooder in my bathroom and visit them all the time (no jokes please ) I hold them several times a day. I give them treats out of my hand.... and they still run away if I try to catch them to hold. Also I heard that Silkies and Polish's are sweethearts .... Mine are not! They are the most skittish of the bunch... What more can I do??? Or are some chicks going to be nicer than others? All of them DO know I'm the feeder. I'm in a quandary~ I also have a couple extra questions but at the moment I can't think of them!
