    I unfortunately don't have pictures, (I've only been doing it when the little brothers aren't around because I don't want them messing everything up.) but I just wanted to let you all know that with the right motivators you can teach chickens simple tricks. I've been teaching Comet, Penguin, Fluffet, and Jumper to jump up on my arm when I stick it out by cupping my hand a certain way which is how they know there's water in it. (They like drinking water from my hand.) It's really funny seeing them eying my hand right before they jump.[​IMG]

    Wow! My banty chicken likes to jump on top of my head (when i'm not looking).

    I've only had that happen once with on of my chickens when they were little. I don't get what they find so appealing about sitting on heads.
