Chick training

taught everyone to eat out of my hand today and got 3 of the cream Legbars to jump into my lap to do so

 

Favorite treat on earth right now is cage bird finch seed (and yes they have grit)

Cool!

John 10:28-29: And I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. “My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.

well that was the most ridiculous thing ever. Doing my daily chick poop pick up, water change and handling training.
Each chick gets caught and hugged tight while offered a handful of finch seed. The Legbars have this down and know exactly what is up and start climbing me. The barnevelders are less enthused but have finally gotten so they don't yell and will eat after a second. (The goal is not pets but handleable chickens)

So I am down to my last 3 chicks to handle/feed train and the Legbars lose patience- big hen flies to my head (I am kneeling with a hooded fleece on) and is walking around on my hood then my back pecking. Medium hen is grabbing my hood string and playing tug o war,Little Rooster flies to the perch next to my face and is leaning over staring at me and little hen is running back and forth and jumping on my thighs

LOL Finally done torturing the barnevelders and dump a few handfuls finch seed on the floor while calling "chick chick chick" "Hey big hen chick chick" and big hen climbs to my head and flies down and the shark swarm on the seed ensues. What a bunch of bird brains literally
