In the Brooder
- Mar 15, 2015
Hi! I have two hens Lele and Kendall, both 14 week old Plymouth rocksI have had two chickens in the past who were very sweet and followed me around my yard and would come running to me when I called them but sadly they passed. My new chickens seem to not like me at all! if I come into the yard they will shy away and if I try to hold them I have to chase them around until I can catch one! I'm frustrated! I've tried giving them space, using treats and force holding them and nothing has worked! I'm wondering if maybe they will mature or become calmer once they lay their first egg which should be in 2 weeks! Any advice for more docile chickens?
