    Here is what I do when I have a chick that just won't get their legs underneath. [​IMG] And here is one more example of how someone else did it [​IMG] You are basically creating a baby walker device for them. You get them in a standing postion, making sure they can put some weight on their legs. The little chick here took two days and she was able to hold her own weight. Hope that helps!

    Lol our dogs are smallish, it took a while to train the chickens to run away, and recently our awesome older dog died and the younger one is afraid of chasing the chickens without her. So they are coming closer to the porch now and we have to run outside yelling like crazy people to chase them off [​IMG]We have a really nice porch that collects the sun and is usually 20-30 degrees warmer than temps 30 feet away so of course the chickens want to come up all the time lol [​IMG]

    We have a Aussie mix puppy and though we never trained him even for a second how to herd he will herd those chickens to his best! He tries to line them up, get them all together, and then bring them to one place. However, unlike ducks, chickens tend to scatter.

    As for our porch, we had to put up a fence because the chickens weren't only going on the porch, they thought going on the road during heavy traffic was a brilliant idea also.[​IMG]

    I can picture the chickens scattering instead of lining up! [​IMG]

    They always seem to have brilliant ideas [​IMG] not sure how chicken-minds think.
