    First you go into their pen with a rake in hand.
    Then you start to rake all their mess into a pile.
    Then while raking you fill in all their favorite dust bowls, with dirt.
    Then you pack the dirt in with your feet.

    Then you let the chickens back into their pen and watch them give you the stink eye for messing with their stuff.

    They haven't said a word to me all day. Here I thought I was doing them a favor by cleaning their pen. See if I'm ever helpful again

    Here's another way:

    1. Give your neighbor's chickens a corn tortilla every night to get them back in the coop while neighbors are on vacation.
    2. Ask for free produce at the stand today. Get 4 heads of romaine lettuce.
    3. Give chickens an entire head of lettuce.
    4. Get stink eye because it's not a tortilla, pasta, rice, or other carb.

    Quote:Have you not heard about the benifits of a low carb diet? No? Me either, my hens turned down cheerios today, ate stale bread just fine, but cheerios - no way! LOL

    Edited to add: Your neighbors may have trouble getting thier flock to bed without the corn tortilla training you have given, LOL.
