I don't know about chickens, but I've leash trained a fair amount of parrots. The biggest problem I ran into was that most of the harness/leash designs were bulky and awkward, making them uncomfortable for the bird. Some of the newer ones designed like a shirt look promising though.

Currently chicken-less, hoping to get a fresh start soon.
My wish-list: Old English Game Bantams, American Game, D'uccles, Japanese Bantams, Bantam Cornish, Large Fowl Cornish, Lakenvelders, Welsummers, Kraienkoppen, Andalusians, Speckled Sussex, Cubalaya, Sumatra, Easter Egger (large and bantam), Orpingtons, Iowa Blue, Marans...I think I'm going to need a lot of pens!
