I decided to treat my chickies today and scrambled up an egg for them. An hour later, it's still on the plate with only the boldest daring to come near it. They peck tentatively at the plate, then at the egg. Then they shake their heads furiously and peck rapidly at the wood shavings that make up their bedding. Once they've cleared the taste of egg from their beak, they go over to the food dispenser and eat their crumbles. Weird chicks.
