Just wondering how typical it is here for people here train their chicks, and what proportion of them. Do you train your chicks, and if so, what do you get them to do? I have four six-week old chicks that have been keeping me busy for a couple of hours every night on various lessons (for example, early socializing; tongue click = yogurt; getting used to being grabbed; used to being picked up; used to being held / moved around; having their bums checked; up next is potty training). I am thinking with future batches I might just train the naturals! Since training takes a long time, I'm curious - do others here do all of the above (other than potty training)? If so, do you train all of your chicks or just the most sociable ones? Also, if you don't train, is the bird unmanageable down the road?
