I have heard without daily interaction they will turn. With mine Az was handfed, and handled everyday from the time he was a baby. He is wonderful, outgoing friendly,happy boy. he hit a stage where he got very nippy, and would try to bluff you but we worked throught that, and now he is an angel.
Athena our hen came from a really bad situation never handled for the 12ys of her life. She is VERY timid and I don't think will ever come out of her shell but she is happy to have az to hangout with, they r partners in crime always getting into trouble.
Would you keep Lucy? It sounds like you are going too. It may make her happy to have a friend, like it did with Athena. It also may make her come out of her shell more if she sees the new baby doing things wit you she may want to then too. It is soley your choice, and hard one at that. Good luck and just go with your instincts
