Training a chicken to follow

relocating chickens from tractor to coop

How do we transfer chickens from the tractor back to the coop?


Anna has them conditioned to respond to the sound of some feed being shaken in a cup. A handy trick to have when chickens get in an escape mood.


The training is simple. Just do a lot of shaking every morning before you feed your flock. Anna’s method involves calling our girls “chickees” in her best 3rd grade teacher voice.
