    After the scrub,,,
    To pick one up, hold your hand open to let the chick walk upon it...lol
    Slowly pick up your outer fingers where you have the chick in palm...lol
    Wash Hands after you handled them.

    Petting a chicken on the roost.
    Pet the crop to the belly, they will stand up for you and they will hopefully let you pet more.
    I never grab a chick on the back at first, always a belly move.
