I have heard that chcickens can be trained. Well, I hope that is true...because I seem to have a "special" chicken... LOL She is the last to get up on the roosts at night, and the last to get down and out in the morning. She stands in the coop and crys for the others. A few will run back in, and look up, talk to her, and run back out. She finally gets the nerve up to leap off, but flys into the waterer and feeder each morning. It's not funny, but have to giggle as I here the thud, and then she squawks like it hurt to do this. Well, I am sure it does. I have tried to show her to go down the ladder. She doesn't get it. I am so afraid she will injure herself. Is there any tips on training her to do so? I plan on spending enough time on my upcoming vacation to do the training. But am unsure of how to do this? We sell meal worms at work, and was wondering if I let all others out, shut the pop door, and then laid them on the ladder each rung at a time, would she be fooled to get them and get down.?? Or even broccolli, might work? Any suggetions are much appreciated.
