So we have had our chicks 5 weeks. The kids love to feed them by hand which has helped socialize them without the kids chasing them and grabbing them. However, this week some of the pecks seemed a bit harder. My mind went down the road to a flock of huge beaks pecking constantly at us and our guests, because we have trained them to "bite" us. To feed by hand? Or not to feed? That is the question. Thanks!
