    Hmm...well, a lot of patience, consistency and treats are what did it for me. That's how I taught Wobbles "No" and "Drop it" and am currently teaching her "Jump". I gotta warn you though, it'll take a lot of time and you gotta have the patience and steadiness of a rock!

    I have seen videos of ducks that have learned how to read with food rewards. Ducks to chickens is like goats to sheep, LOL. I love how smart ducks are and how they will protect each other instead of pecking at each other like chickens. The reading ducks toured and did presentations for elementary kids so if the university is not still running the program I am sure there are still videos of the ducks and the training methods that were used.
