Although I don't have a huge list, one pretty cool trick my two favorite chickens have taught themselves is to fly up on my arm on command. :)All I have to do is hold out my arm, and they automatically know to perch on it! Smart girls. :D

Cookie, my Sicilian Buttercup, has done this since chickhood!

Alex, too!

Cookie is adorable.      Some  bycers have taught chickens to respond to clickers (like for dog training).  You might put that in the search box and see if anything comes up. Others have taught they girls to do a modified agility course  - like dogs.  They are much slower but, it is adorable watching them.  I believe there are chicken agility videos on you tube.

Thank you so much! At the risk of sounding biased, I happen to think so, too. :P But how could I not be proud of my baby girl?
