    I trained my chicken, Buckeye to. There is a thread about it around here somewhere if you can find it [​IMG]

    Im thinking of walking my chicken onm a harness :p
    reasons, you ask?
    1. i can let them walk a bit more free range without haveing to set up a darm fence and watch for my cat nonstop
    2. if i let one out, it would be easy to put it back without chasing after the hen like an idiot
    3. Dude, who doesn't want to walk a chicken on a leash???

    Just take a weapon (pepper spray or something) with you to protect from big dogs. Mary
