    I have had my babies for about 2 weeks, and they are finally getting the hang of my "call". They are still afraid of the huge hand that delivers the treat, but at least they come right over to the tray (with millet) in it and start cooing and pecking away. They were just looking at it and SLOWLY one would venture over and then they would all follow.... I really feel like I'm making progress!!! I'm so stinkin' happy!!!

    Glad they are learning & adjusting. At first I could only get mine to eat cracked corn. Slowly started mixing other stuff in with the corn and they are liking other treats. This week been giving out lots of frozen strawberries. Way hot here cold treats are a must!

    It sure is cute watching them! Hot here too, we have been doing watermelon....they love it & my one hen does too! I'm just glad they are kinda responding to the treats now and not just staring at them for hours before one brave sole would go and investigate!! [​IMG]
