Speaking Chicken + Giveaway

March 27, 2015

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.

  1. 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.

  2. I'd love to try so many things! The nesting box blend is probably my number one, but as for treats I'd love the pumpkin seed snacks. Thank you for offering the giveaway. And congratulations on publishing – your book sounds wonderful!

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. We just got our first chickens and I'm so excited! I can't wait to read your book. See you at the Country Living Fair!

  6. I've gotten free samples from them before and my girls loved it all but would love some more of the delightful herbs for their nesting box. They smell so good I want to add them to my bed too!
