7. Pumping The Swing

Now we are going to show your chicken how they can control the swing. Yes, they can actually "pump" the swing! While they are up on the moving swing, hold the treats in your hand in front of them, just out from the swing’s arc, and up where they can see them. When they swing towards you, give them a treat. Be sure to hold the treats just out of their reach to make them stretch for them. This will add force to the swing design, and keep the swing going. They should be having fun by now!
