Hi All, I picked up three 2 week old BA chicks from the local feed store on Sunday, who were getting chick mash. I kept them on the same chick mash, and offered some sand which I saw them peck at a little. I offered a little scrambled egg the other day, on a paper plate, which they ignored. I figure the plate was probably scaring them off so I put in in the feeder. The next day it really looked like most of the egg was still there, and they were eating the mash around the egg! Which surprised me because from what I read, scrambled egg is like chick catnip! I'm just not sure how to get my girls to start exploring new things... I'm used to dogs, who SMELL the food... do chicks have a good sense of smell? Right now I put a few raisins, a bit of banana, a bit of mushroom, and some cooked spaghetti noodles on the raised brick their food/water is on... no interest. I'll leave it there overnight but don't want it to fall into the shavings and get gross. This is frustrating, because I want them to associate me with good things (treats) and be semi-social chickens, but right now they could care less about anything I bring them, I'm just the big thing that makes some noise sometimes and cleans the brooder! Ugh!
