My hen Snapple :)

  1. roostersandhens
    Snapple, is special in my opinion. She is incredibly smart! Just so smart! All chickens are smart, but she seems to be specially bright! I didn't even try to teach Snapple her name, she figured it out herself! After I saw her learn her name, I thought well, maybe I could teach her more! I recently started training her, using raw unsalted, out of the shell sunflower seed as treats. She has learned to come on my lap on command so far. I will continue to teach her more. She is a very nice hen. One thing I want you all to know is, if your chicken won't do tricks, it isn't because she is dumb, all chickens are smart. Chickens, unlike dogs, they don't have the desire to please people. Dogs want to obey you, chickens don't. This is Snapple anyways:

    We have a lovely Red Sex Link hen named Margo who has figured out that's her name too, She comes whenever called yet the other's don't seem to respond to their name, just food. If you sit down she will immediately jump on your lap and sit with you. So yes, I do believe if I was to try and teach her some things, she'd probably respond to it..... might give that a go now.
