Mine love grapes, blueberries and oats!
I also spent a LOT of time just cuddling them. It's so much easier if you've raised them from chicks though.

For chicks I've never had them be excited over treats right off the bat. I had to put chick feed in my hand and just relax my hand in the enclosure until the were curious enough to try. Then I started mixing in a few mealworms, and gradually introduced other treats. The initial trick was just getting them to associate my hand with food! After that, when they come to my hand for food I say "chick chick CHICKEN!" to associate them with the call and the food, that way as adults, wherever they are, they'll come running to me for treats!
