    Oh that is just way to funny!!! [​IMG] Maybe I can teach my 14 year old to do that. She's terrified of them and I don't know why. Maybe that's where the "Chicken Dance" orignated from [​IMG]

    If you grab them by their feet and tip them upside down, they go very calm. Sometimes they will try to curl up and flap their wings, if you don't get them upside down fast enough, I just gently push their head down when they do that and Ta-da, calm bird. Then you can just lay them on the ground and you don't even have to hold them down, like that guy was doing. I use this technique when I want to examine them or have to dust them. I think my Japanese rooster likes being held like a baby. My daughter and I carry him around all over like a baby doll. [​IMG]
