Picky chicks?

my nearly four week old chicks seem picky to me and I'm wondering if this is something I can expect them to grow out of LOL

The only treat that they will eat is mashed up boiled egg. I've tried meal worms, strawberries, bananas, cloves, broccoli and dandelions. Call me crazy but I expected my gals to eat pretty much anything. I thought about trying some cooked oatmeal but that's one of my favorites and I'm not sure I want to waste a whole package of oatmeal if my girls are just gonna turn up their beaks at it. Gosh.

I think some of it may be a learned behavior? As they learn that tryign things sometimes tastes good (sounds like toddlers doesn't it?) they will start trying more and more. I know my chicks have always loved corn-could try that?
