How long does it take to spoil a chick?

A little less than a week around here!
These guys wait for their "mush" treat each evening and then line up and watch me swing the fly swatter to try to get them some extra protein lol.
They take turns trying to jump for my hands to be the one to get the fly. 2 of them are pure Cochins and 4 are part barred rock.

Can't say I'm any better. The way I look at it though is that I'm their stand-in mom, so need to teach them how to live life. ;-)
