Finger Pecking!

A couple of my 6-week-old chicks have started pecking my fingers whenever they are in the brooder. It started with my Delaware, and now my BR is joining in. Is there anything I can do to stop this? My 7 chicks are currently housed in an 8 sq.ft. brooder in my kitchen which is the best I can do for them space-wise for another week or two when their coop will be ready. I don't know if that would be an issue or not. They have plenty of food and water, and I try to give them a bit of entertainment at least a couple times a day (treats, strips of paper, plastic toys, etc.)

Any advice on how to curb this behavior?

Hmmmm...those two certainly are the most aggressive when it comes to snacking. And maybe my fingers resemble juice worms.
