Who can benefit from training a chicken?

  • School Teachers

  • Chickens!
  • Anyone that wants to improve their observation and timing skills, and learn about how Operant and Classical Conditioning are powerful training tools!


When we train our dogs, we already have a basic idea of how a dog should be trained. The cool thing about training a chicken is that we go in fresh, we don’t have preconceived ideas on what should be done.  Training a chicken will open you to the actual TRAINING part. When we train dogs or kids, we can’t help but have an emotional attachment. Since training a chicken is much more “mechanical”, it offers us the opportunity to really understand what we need to do, and how the learning process works.

A reminder: Please don't forget that chickens have feelings too.  Even though we say that training them is more mechanical, we know we can have fun with them and they are not toys or machines!
