This is a closeup of chick facial massage. Blooie, and the rest of you who aren't sure how to go about taming The Wild Chick, here's what you need to do to arrive at this point. Get some meal worms. Find a clean spot on the ground in the run where just the chicks will be. If the adults are around, they'll hog all the meal worms. Grab two fist fulls of meals worms, sit down and open your hands. The chicks will mob your lap. Do this a few more times, and they'll be conditioned to hop into your lap every time you sit down. Let them find their comfort zone on your lap without trying to touch them or handle them. It takes a few days for them to build up trust and not fear your hands. Leave your hands in your lap with the chicks and they will get accustomed to them and not fear them. When the chicks behave trustingly, slowly, stroke the back of the head of one, or under the chin without otherwise touching the chick. They have to warm up to it, and they'll protest at first. Just keep at it, very slowly, little bit by little bit. Soon you will be able to stroke the zone just under the eye and ear that is guaranteed to put any chicken in The Zone, and you then own them.
