Speaking Chicken + Giveaway

If you spend enough time with the flock you will inevitably learn their language. We’ve been speaking chicken for years with our own flock and I share how you can do it too in my book. Recently I sat down and wrote a blog post for my publisher about speaking chicken.

You can read it here.

Chickens are also completely trainable. I cover how to do that in my book too. A great place to start is with treats. Enter to win these delicious treats (good for training) and a treat ball from Treats for Chickens.

Hello friends, welcome! Follow along on our chicken, beekeeping, gardening, crafting and cooking adventures from Cape Cod.

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one who talks to my chickens lol!

  • I've learned a few words over the last 4 decades. I've noticed the vocabulary changes over the years, based on different conditions in each area I've lived. The most helpful "word" for me to use is "bek-bek," said very fast. It means, "move," and helps me walk without fear of getting tripped by anyone or stepping on anyone. It also seems to infer a higher status on me, as my rooster shows respect by standing back when I say it. Otherwise, he's at my heels.

  • I would like to try the Pumpkin Seed Snacks for my flock.

    the chicken crack sounds interesting! I think the girls would love that treat…

  • We speak chicken too! My kids love imitating our hens' "happy to be dirt bathing" noise. Our hen Rosa looks up into trees and calls, "Are those chickadees my baby chicks?" So cute!

  • I love to talk to my girls and spoil them with treats everyday. Thank you for offering the give-away and the best on your book. It sounds grat!

    Take care.

  • I can't wait for my book to come (for my littles) and we all talk chicken over here!
