Can Chickens Smell and Taste?

Growing up, I loved coming home from school My mom always did an incredible job of making our house feel like a home We felt safe, significant and it seemed like there were many days when a home baked treat was waiting for us after school I could smell the fresh baked cookies before I walked in the door and I would follow the scent right into the kitchen It’s there I found mom and a plate of warm, fresh cookies Our senses have a funny way of bringing all sorts of memories back,

Taming Chickens

Have you ever stood in your yard and called your chickens? Have they ever come running like a herd of wildebeest across the plain? Have you ever possessed the sense you may be the most powerful human being on planet Earth, that this may be the peak of your life?

Well, if so, you have experienced tame chickens When someone sees my flock of almost 30 chickens flying and running behind me, they may see someone crazy, but I feel like some sort of Snow White/ Queen of the Beasts


Regardless of breed,

Treats Help Manage A Flock

Anyone who has tried to herd an escaped flock back into the coop quickly discovers that chickens have a mind of their own Some run this way, while others go that way Few un where their owner intends The result is exercise for both humans and chickens and little else
Fortunately, chickens are easy to trick Herding doesn’t work well but tasty lures do Chickens can’t resist a delicious snack No matter where the flock is, as soon as one bird spots treats being served, she’ll cluck and summon her fellow flockmates to the feast
