I have the smartest chickens. A couple of weeks ago I realized my hens and 1 roo had gotten around to the front. That is a major no-no, we live on a busy road. It isnt that they have no where to roam, they have a big barn, large field, creek, etc. I ran out the carport door with left over cornbread, scattered a little bit and loving cornbread like they do, they followed me back to the back yard and the coop. NOW! at least once a day they come to the carport door or driveway gate cackling and crowing. Of course, I take off with bread or whatever I have on hand to get them to follow me. To get to the front , they go quite a bit of way around a fence down a field road and around to the front. They are smart, smart chicks. I think so anyway! I guess I will try to lead them with no treat and hope we can break this habit. Any other suggestions?
