It was just last Friday that we brought the new chicks home. They have grown wing feathers and are starting to make more noise. I can't remember whether the chicks from last year were as easily frightened. These guys will freak out and run away at most sounds. Not to mention when I stick my hand into the tub to refill their food and water.
There is one thing that I have found that will hold their attention - grass and dirt. They were really excited when I put it down and forgot all about being scared. I am considering this early training since they will eventually become grass-fed hens.
