Did you get these girls as POL or younger?  Are they happy to be picked up - are they quite tame?

hi .... they came from this breeder http://www.wylyevalleychickens.co.uk/

her name is Fleur , she really cares for her flock , very healthy birds , she fully vaccinates , we have to have vaccinated birds as we once had marek's disease which killed all our birds , since then we only get from fully vaccinated breeders as once you've had this disease its guaranteed you'll get it again

and yes most are very tame as I make a point of handling them as much as I can

what birds do you have ?

I have two beautiful new girls but so timid!  With me only a few days 'Livestock Market' thread. It just seems so unlikely they will ever let me pick them up just listed them for sale. They feed from my hand cautiously and at night I stroke them a bit in their coop but still not looking good.

Were yours timid to start with?

yes they all hid in the corner first day
2nd day bit more curious
3rd day more confidence
and so on .......... try some live food ( fishing maggots if you can get them ) that will get their attention , and suddenly you will become the focus of all their attention   ;)   

When mine see me it's a mad dash to see who can get to me first LOL not because of affection just because I have food !!!!

It's been a week for us and lots of mealworm bribery gone on but I think unlikely to get really tame..
