Sorry 😐 it quite late but Happy 😊 New Year, as a Happy 😊 New Year present 🎁, Snowy is now laying eggs 🍳 to.
Why did we train our our chickens?
We wanted to train our chickens so that we can easily get them in their coop or run when we need to rather than having to chase them round the garden!
It is also good to have your chickens trained so that if you see a predator in the garden, such as a fox, you can quickly get your chickens to go tot the safety of their run or coop.
How we trained them?
We trained them with quite a bit of work at the start because they did not know what it was (corn) and how we taught them it was by shaking the corn every time they pecked to tell them when you hear the shaking noise it means corn.
When the chickens come out they run to me to get some corn. Today I did a video of them running to me for some corn (I don’t give them as much corn as it shows in the video.)
When it comes to stroking time all but Stripey run away.
Hey ho at least we get to know that we stroke one, yay.
When it come to feeding time all but Bluebell come to eat.
Hey ho at least she’s got feet!!
When it comes to bedtime Snowy puts them to bed.
Hey ho at least she knows they have been watered and fed.
