5. Setting Your Chicken on The Swing

Let's get your chicken comfortable with sitting or standing on the swing. They need to get over any fears, and figure out how to grip and balance on the perch. Make sure the swing is hanging at a height just above their head. Get your treats handy. Pick up your chicken. Hold the perch of the swing and set your chicken on it. Let go of the perch and the chicken. Immediately reward with a treat. Repeat these steps until they are comfortable on the swing. DO NOT pull the swing back just yet!
