Teaching chickens tricks?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Are there any suggested ways I can teach my little chicks any tricks? For example getting them to come to my hand when I put it into the box? If so how? I would love to have my chicks do tricks! (HA! That rhymed smile.png)

You can definatly teach them to come to your hand. Just put food in it and move gently.

Mine (2weeks old) come to my hand when I wiggle my fingers and stand and let me scratch their tummies :-)

Thank you, and that's so cute! One of mine will let me scratch her belly but the other is very jumpy, she'll only let me scratch her if I'm very careful
