I have a question to all of you :

  1. Dear Chicken-Lovers:

    We all know that chicken can do more than lay eggs or supply tasty

    Who of you is as crazy as me and tought to his chickens something
    very different, somenthing unusual for chickens ?

    If you read my new member introduction (posted today) you saw that my rooster learnt to go on the line, when we walk on the road, like a feathered dog and enjoys it (of coarse, at home he goes free, without any restriction).

    Of coarse, there are more intelligent animals than chickens and they are more easy to train. But exactly this is a challenge for every true
    chicken lover, because your chicken is much more intelligent than common people believe.

    My question again: who tought to his chicken something crazy or at least unusual ?[​IMG][​IMG]:

    maybe not taught, but my ISA has learnt that my neck is a toasty warm place to curl up before bed. She jumps onto my arm, climbs up, and snuggles into my neck. VERY difficult to remove for bed time.

    Welcome to BYC from Massachusetts, Cape Cod! Brazil! Wow you are so far away! We're glad you joined us.

    To answer your question, I think my chickens have taught me to obey their strong suggestions more than me having taught them anything. They're smart that way. (smiling)

    Some of our chickens will lie on their back and let me cover their heads. They like to fall asleep like that sometimes.
    The rooster has trained me to pick him up whenever he stares at me, and the head hen has learned that I will come when she whines pathetically.
  5. Thanks, I enjoy what you are telling.
    Please, others, go on ![​IMG]

    I cannot get enough of it:yuckyuck

    These tales, if read by others (no-members) might conquer them to become chicken lovers, too.[​IMG]

  6. Dear Chicken's Maid:

    You are right to pray, I agree:

    Chickens are one of the most beautiful and funny gifts of God to our Human Kind. God's blessing save all of us chicken lovers and our beloved animals. Amen.

    I have a young rooster that is very friendly. I have been teaching him to jump on my arm. My boyfriend asked what I was doing and I told him. He said you train Falcons to do that, so I named him Falcon!

    Wow Brazil!!!! Welcome!!!!!

    I guess I haven't taught my chickens tricks or anything, just have many that like to be held.
  9. My chickens know to tug on my clothes when they want something. Whether food, or cuddles, or if they want me to take out a chicken that's currently in their favorite nest, they always know to come to me. Daphne, my demanding little OEG bantam, has pretty much mastered the art of communicating with me.
