There have been some posts lately asking how to get your chicks to like you. I think there are lots of ways to accomplish this, but lap training is one of the best. Every evening after dinner, I select a chick and bring her into the other room for lap training and one-on-one time. They almost all adore the individual attention, love to be cuddled, love to snuggle into my lap or crook of my arm and fall asleep. Poop? Not if you don't let them get too excited and start hopping around.
