    Well I got the weirdest idea. How about walking a chicken? Stick on a collar and a leash. Maybe a harness. I tried a collar and a leash on my oegb but she got out. ANyone walked a chicken??????

    My dad knew a guy who had a chicken that would perch on a stick carried on his shoulder and go everywhere with him.

    When I take my chooks out like to our churches easter egg hunt they each will wear a dog halter and are tied to a stake. Some figure it out better than others. Some don't even realize they are tied and others just sit and pout.

    I have a "H" style harness and leash for mine but they don't really "walk"....They just stand around doing "chicken" things so It's just go the the park for a scratch-n-peck.

    The best thing is the "H" harness really supports her by the body so if a dog comes running by I can shatch her up real quick before she gets hurt.

    Yes...Obelisk went around the same danged tree like 30 times before I dropped the leash and let her keep going...I think she wore a trench around it...sigh.
