Why give treats?

Rewards can get YOU to do things, right? Rewards work for animals, too.

The crane trainers use treats as rewards to encourage wanted behaviors in the chicks. Team members have learned that crane chicks love treats like these:

  • Grapes
  • Cranberries
  • Pumpkin chunks
  • Mealworms
