    WOW- that would be nice to know! I am new to chickens... but trying to learn all the tricks and secrets, I hope someone has a good idea!!!

    I am crazy about keeping things as clean, as long as time permits![​IMG]

    Im not sure if you can train them where to go potty...but when my mom was a little girl they had a chicken named chicken little...well chicken little followed her around even sat at the table with them! They trained chicken little to come to the sound of the fly swatter on the floor because when she was little they used to hit fly's with the swatter then feed them to chicken little...so yes I think they can be trained a "little"!
