We're first time chicken owners, with 3 weeks of experience under our belt now. With a 7 week old, a 4 week old, and a 5 week old (chicks of different breeds). We tried giving them a tasty treat while they were scratching around in the flowerbed. The watermelon was ignored. So was the cooked rice. So was the cantaloupe. So was the plain Greek yogurt. They LOVE to perch on our shoulders, though, and tonight my husband was trying to swipe a tiny bit of yogurt on their beaks, and they were squawking at him, then jumped up on his shoulders. He held the small container of yogurt up to them, and lo and behold, they went to town! Suddenly, they can't get enough yogurt. I have no intention of having to introduce them to new foods only when perched on my shoulder, though. In fact, the bigger they get, the less I like the pirate look. I'm guessing perhaps we are trying to introduce treats while they are still too young. Or did we just get some high-maintenance girls?
