    My chickens very favorite is grapes, I split them in my hand and try to throw them to them faster than they can pick them up....can't beat them though. They usually take them from my hand. [​IMG] Some prefer watermelon or yogurt or bread bits.

    Mealworms. When I take treats out to my chicks they disregard anything but mealworms.

    My chickens love Honey Combs and oatmeal. On a hot day I put out watermelon they can see that really good and come running for it. Every time I put and treats out I call them and they come running. Good luck getting them back.
