I had asked Seramas to post how he taught his chickens some tricks but he never answered :-(
I looked it up on the internet and found this trick. It looks pretty simple to teach. Anyone have any easy tricks? I am going to try to teach mines this one.
"Place a hula hoop firmly on the ground between yourself and the chickens, one hand on top of it holding it down and balanced. When your chickens approach, feed them goodies (bread will work) when they step through the hoop to you. You have to do this EVERY SINGLE day until the birds got the idea and began to go through the hoop and then ask for the treat. Once they get the idea start raising the hoop off the ground higher and higher till they learn to leap through the hoop. It really is an easy trick, you just need some patience."
