I can't believe the difference between chicks that we 'raised' in our brooder from day one, and the chicks that I let stay with their mama. OMG, they are wild and crazy! You can't catch or pick them up whatsoever Will that change at all (they were born in February)? I just can't believe the difference. We have four of them, and they flip out if you get anywhere near the crazy things! Hmm.. might take that into consideration should we have anymore babies..grr..
