    Has anyone done clicker training with chicks that are three weeks old? What did you give for treats?? How did you start? Please share all stories looking forward training my 6 chicks. I would like them to do differ things each, So when friends come over they can see they are very smart. I get so tried hearing they are dumb chicks. I chicks are so friendly and love to be love on now, they will only eat out of my hands for treats right now, If I put a treat in the cage they will not touch it, so getting them eating out of the cup holder going to be a challenge. Please share how you have done yours.

    It's almost easier to do with adults. All the hens accept treats, chick not so much. But, if you try in the morning before they eat, you may make progress.

    What exactly are you training them to do?
