    I learned a trick from my cousin a few years back... put the chicken's head under it's wind and slowly move the chicken in circles. they fall asleep almost every time!!! I thought it was funny

    Oh gosh...my chickens have quite an array of tricks.

    Jumping for Strawberries (I have a pic of Billy doing with with my kids), saying "Hello" (Heidi, my Australorp does this, and I have it on video...SO CUTE!)...Billy used to wave to me when I'd say hello...Chickie Chickie Rub Rubs was always a favorite for my hen Marti...you'd say that, and she'd back up to you and let her rub her back...

    I'm sure there's more I've forgotten...as I think of them, I'll let you know.

    Maybe this isn't a great trick but I have taught my Rooster to jump for food.

    He can get pretty darn high too.
