    I dipped my fingers in plain, healthy yogurt.
    Then I poured some of their food on it(brand new food, they love it!)
    and crushed up meal worms.
    They peck and peck and peck away, I had ALL SEVEN CHICKS nommin' on my hand!
    It was so cute! They still fear the naked hand (no treats on it), but I think with time, they will learn I just give them food and cuddle!

    When they get a bit older offer them whole buggies in your hand. I walk through the field picking off potato bugs. Even the mean broody one will eat out of my hand that way. Its a nice treat
