    The chickens need to get a swat on the butt from the fly swatter before they become afraid of it. Don't worry. They won't fear you, just the evil swatter.

    I have two bullies I've used it on. All I need to do is show it to either one now, and they run the other way.

    In summer, the chickens usually free range much more, so I keep a hose charged and handy to squirt off the pavers when the poop begins to encroach on human routes. It's fast and easy.
