Chickens Stories from Our Nest

How to Train a Chicken

Tilly and I

Naturally, chickens are apprehensive of humans.  They have every right to be, don’t you think?  They are fearful.  They are cautious.  They are skittish.  It takes time for them to become accustomed to their caretakers and human family.  They need to develop a bond with you and trust that they are safe in your presence.   It also takes time for them to accept you into their flock.   Chicken, just like humans, have their own personalities.  Some enjoy being handled, others prefer to sit near you and others are entirely aloof to any handling.  This is the case with all flocks.
