4. Holding Your Chicken

Work on getting your chickens to trust you and be comfortable with you picking them up. When you pick them up, give them treats and make sure to remain calm and relaxed. Try talking or singing to them - they can sense our mood, and enjoy soothing sounds. Chickens are intelligent, curious, and cautious. Do not get discouraged if they get flustered. That is what chickens do! Encourage them, calm them, or come back and try it again later.
