Ok, I'm perplexed and need advice. I have seen many folks here post about how much their young chicks like mashed-up hard boiled eggs, and use it as a great treat/tamer aid. That makes complete sense, and I'm sure they're right. The problem is - my chicks hate it! I have tried it at various times on three different unrelated clutches from three days to 4 weeks, and every single one them looks at it, gives it a peck, shakes their head to dislodge it, and then bypasses it to go straight for the feed. Not that there's many different ways to prepare mashed up hard-boiled eggs, but am I doing something wrong (I can't imagine what)? It's not a big deal, since they all eat/drink/poop well and grow up just fine, just thought I'd share my peculiar chicks' behavior and see if anyone has experienced the same thing.
