There has been discussion about use of a leash to walk a chicken like a dog. I have not tried that yet, but likely will to see what it is about.

For now I can let several of my birds down and they will follow me. Started testing limits this morning using a cockerel of about 16 weeks that is not among my tamest. We jumped into truck to take a Road Trip to Riverside Park in Jefferson City. The we got out to start walking. This was first time this guy got to go of property.

Hehe, I had a chicken that would take road trips with me. Go to Lowes and all that, even to the poultry auction. People got a kick out of him just following me around. I never used a leash with him as he never wondered off no more then a few feet. He was a white silkie rooster. He passed a few months ago due to a very terrible Guinea attack. But now I have a goose and a sheep that do this.

He flies up to hand when given a reward and calls.
If you show them love, and give them treats a chicken will bend over backwards to please you. I have learned this. Using love and food, I have not met a chicken that didn't want do something for me. I even was able to potty train a chicken house chicken. She used to come in my house and lounge on the couch and watch John Wayne movies.
