You don't want to come off as threatening, either. Many chicks can scare easily.
Now that you have found some chicks you were looking for it's time to pick them up! Some people find that the most successful way to pick up chicks is a subtle, seemingly disinterested approach while most go for the more direct approach. Don't be too eager! This will also scare off a lot of chicks. You don't want them thinking of you as some creep or monster coming to harm them in some way. Present yourself in a way that may attract chicks. This is important because the most affective way at getting chicks and picking them up is by initial appearance.
Proper posture is important! Bend at the knees, not at the waist. This will help you prevent from falling on or in front of chicks. Then, just cup your hands around the chick and stand straight up!
If you have followed these simple steps you will have successfully picked up at least one chick. Be gentle, because they are often small and fragile and you don't want to unintentionally hurt chicks. If you do want to intentionally hurt chicks, you're a bad person and should not do that.
Now that you've picked up a chick, you can hold them to your ear to hear their adorable little chirps. Or, you could let them softly pick at you with their beak. Also, it's pretty popular with the ladies for a guy to show sensitivity towards animals and picking up chicks while they are watching is a great way to obtain their attention. The cuter the animal, the better.
Important: Do not forget to wash your hands after picking up chicks. They may seem cute and cuddly but they may be carrying disease. Hand sanitizer would be a great idea to use after touching chicks. It's always best to wear protection, no matter how much that might seem to dull the experience.
