    Have you trained your chicken to do something special or unique?

    If so...what do they do?

    So far mine know their names, and each one comes when called. I can also tell them to go in their house, and they will.

    I remember when I was a child traveling to Florida, and saw on the side of the road a man who had trained his chickens to do various things, but the one I remember was the one who played a piano for treats.

    My girls dont't do anything special like that but they do come running when you make a clicking noise because they've learned to associate that sound with "human's got treats"

    I think it'd be fun to teach them some other cool tricks later on though :)

    Teaching your chickens to play the piano is a bit ambitious for me. I've taught my girls to come when I call their names and that's about it. [​IMG]
