    I have a small flock of 10 chickens and feel the same way about my birds...love them all! Even when they are busy driving me crazy, lol. [​IMG]

    How did you train your birds to come when you whistle?

    Actually my wife did[​IMG]

    Whenever she wanted their attention, she will take some treat with her and start whistling. With the treat, they will follow her. Well eventually I guess they associated the sound with treat and started responding as such. They are fun

    The guinea fowls also respond to the call but this time they were far out I guess

    The guinea fowls remain very hostile to the flock but the turkeys re gentle and get along very well with the chicken

    Poultry are often underestimated. They are more intelligent than we credit them for. A friend's hen has been trained to use a specialized poo chamber!
