I have 2 SLW hens, purchased as layers. Stella and Lola will eat out of my hand, but are not overly friendly. Fast forward to 6 chicks and our 3 year old grand daughter carrying them around for a week. Also a lot of attention from myself. I have friendly chicks. Hooray!! Today the enormity of the monsters I created came home to roost. THEY PECK ME! They peck the hand that feeds them, they peck my wedding band, they pecked off my bandaid, they peck my toes, they peck anything and everything on me they can get to. Little peckers! But they are FRIENDLY!
