    After reading many helpful posts and taking a lot of advice, we put out their first set of treats for our 10 week old hens. Vanilla yogurt, apples, and cut up bananas. They just stared at it for a while, but one by one, they rolled up their feathers and dug in. End result: Loved the yogurt, pecked at the bananas, and the apples are still untouched.

    They enjoyed it as much as I did seeing yogurt all over their beaks! Hilarious.

    They might like the bananas more if they were mashed up with the yogurt instead of chunks. Mine won't touch sliced bananas, but give them mashed and it's ON!
