Do your chickens do any tricks?

I've seen all types of different things people teach their chickens to do. Some are really clever, others are downright silly. I have one hen that jumps straight up into the air to grab a piece of bread from our hands. I also have a little roo that comes running whenever I yell the word "cookie" then snatches the cookie from my hand and runs away to eat it! (He only likes chocolate chip. No Oreos!)
I've seen lots of videos of funny chicken tricks so my question this week is....do your chickens do any tricks?

  1. Cute! Our chickens are trained to come to anyone yelling, in a high pitched voice, "chick chick chicken!!!!!!!" We use this to get them in well before dark, and reward them with their treat of scratch, birdseed, and dried mealworms. They all come running as fast as their little legs will carry them :-)

  6. Cute! Our chickens come running when we call for them, but no fancy tricks. Maybe someday when we can find the time to train them! Haha! :)

  7. How funny. I don't think any of ours do tricks but now, I'll have to watch more carefully. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Simple Lives Thursday; hope to see you again this week.
