Some chickens learn very quick if there are snacks involved. Gave my ‘Count Tel’ a few mealworms while she was on a swing. Next few days I held a few mealworms on the same height and she hopped on the swing for a treat. Now she jumps on the swing every evening I come with food, hoping for a extra special treat. Even if I dont bring the little bucket with snacks. Then she looks at me saying with her body language: “ please go back inside for my treat. “

I have an area of my run with a 4' fence and occasionally chooks jump out when I'm not letting them free. I don't chase them anymore, just throw the flock some yellow crack and they usually come to the gate to be let back in.

Honestly, I think they are now jumping out to trick me into treats but if the flock isn't all out, they are right by the run waiting for their bribe.
