    So I have had my chicks for two weeks now. I have two silkies, one RI red, and 1 ideal. (Plus a silkie and two ideals that I am babysitting for my neighbor) They are all 2 weeks old, all the silkies are much smaller than the others and really miss the others if we seperate them even for a second. ( there is one silkie that gets her wings plucked on by some of the others so we tried to separate her and she freaked out).

    The other chickens really like to come out and eat treats from our hands and cuddle up on us, but the silkies seem to think the worst of us.

    Will this ever change? I chose silkies because I really wanted cuddly muppets to hang out with and they hate me so far:(

    My 4wk old silkies are warming up to me again....they started out pretty quiet and sweet, then went into a little crazy " onsters everywhere!" phase, but are settling down again now. My 1 1/2 week olds are precious, holding them up under my chin and they snuggle right in and make cute little noises.
