Treats
« on: January 13, 2011, 16:53 »
I like to reward/bribe all my animals on occasion, but the chicks are the fussiest of the lot!

Has anyone any advice on what their chooks love, and also, the big no no when it comes to chook treats.

My ex bats have all pretty much grown back their feathers, and think they deserve a big thankyou for the unrelenting egg laying throughout Thewordwemustnotsay!

Greatest bribe I have found, apart from corn, is grapes - the nearly take my fingers off! Just cut them up a little first as a whole grape is enormous in their beaks!
