    I have zero chicken experience so I bought six chickens. They are starting to respond to positive reenforcement, and follow orders. Wow, smart birds.

    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! Wow those are some special chickens you have there. Mine only glow orders when food is involved. Will do most things for a treat!! The learning centre has some good articles that I'm sure you will find helpful. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Wishing you the very best of luck and enjoy BYC :frow

    There were a few members on BYC that have "clicker" trained their birds and also I saw a video of a hen doing a compromised agility routine, like dogs do. You may come across it on youtube. Also a serama rooster "Phillip fetches." who does.
