I know that some have already posted some information about taming chicks. Mine were eating out of my hand the first day, but they have gradually become more "scary" and all eight of them will run to the back of the brooder when I go out to just talk to them. They seem to relax a bit after about 5 or 6 minutes, but still hang to the back. I've picked them up from time to time. I guess my question is "should I expect them to get tame at all? Will they become more tame once I put them in the coop and start going in to feed them? I keep forgetting that these are birds, not dogs and cats, I'm sure their personality and temprament are different. I just thought it would be nice to have hand tamed chicks for later on so they might be nicer in the coop. Is this a myth?? Any experiences/information will be interesting to me.
