    I am a chicken newbie, starting with a group of Silkies. I am also a professional dog trainer & behaviorist, so at some point, I will be training my chickens as well! This site has already taught me so much, and I am sure will provide me with so much knowledge! Happy to be here!

    [​IMG] I remember reading about someone on BYC that was also a dog trainer and she started training her chickens with a clicker. I think if you search for " Chicken agility" you may find you tube video.
