Okay, so I never spent enough time to make my chickens tame. However, they will eat bread (reluctantly) out of your hand and my 3 yr old can walk right up to the hens, but I cant actually grab them. I need to catch them to dust them, look them over, etc. I can always grab them at night but thats usually not the best time to try to be able to see what you're doing. How do you catch a chicken. I heard of a stick with a hook or something before that you catch them by their feet. I was thinking maybe just like a fishing net or something. I want to know the best way to catch them and not harm them at the same time or absolutely wreck their nerves. Thanks!
