    I am not quite sure what my cochins like as treats. They are young, the girls only about 3-5 weeks and the roo is 12 weeks. They are tiny compared to the hens we saw at the ranch where we bought them (they are giant blue cochins).
    We've tried seedless hybrid grapes, as our older hens seem to favor those.
    But they show no intrest. I know theres a treat chart on here, but I'd like to what owners give their chickies personally.
    I also want a treat they will love! Because I want to tame them, pick them up, and give em' all sorts of love. Like I do with the other hens.
    But they run away from me and hide [​IMG]

    Give them another few weeks. Mine didn't show much interest in treats until they were closer to 2 months.

    Mine love watermelon rinds, sweet corn cobs and apples. I tried giving them whey once (other hens love it but my cochins didn't touch it for some reason).

    Ours love tomatoes! (My six year old son wanted me to tell you that:)
