Actually chickens … Actually chickens are very bright and certainly not dumb, having been a breeder for a while now seeing things such as Roosters using trickery to lure in hens they like by giving calls for food when there’s no food at all just to trick the hen and lure her in
this is amazing. … this is amazing. oh my goodness its so sweet.
It’s their regular … It’s their regular chicken food.
What is in the cup … What is in the cup for a treat?
The music was … The music was distracting. Chickens have trained the humans very well
You might want to … You might want to look up Terry Ryan of Legacy Canine Training. She offers chicken training workshops around the world. She initially worked with Bob Bailey, the man whose seminars I originally attended.
This work was … This work was conducted as part of a seminar. We worked with the birds several times a day. It was probably several hundred repetitions for the birds to learn what we wanted — mostly because, since they move so fast, your human timing has to be really, really good. If you click at the wrong moment (a manner of micro-seconds), you accidentally reinforce a movement you don’t really want. Then it takes that many more repetitions where your timing is better to fix it. It’s pretty fun!
Hey, I recently had … Hey, I recently had the idea of clicker training my two chickens so decided to look up any vids on YouTube, and found yours!
My girls are 9 years old (still healthy and active)…just as a comparison, how many repetitions did it take for the hens in the video to pick it up? And were they trained daily? I could only do a few days a week as I don’t live at home.
Appreciate any help
Hello I would like … Hello I would like to know how to start an experience of training a chicken you could provide me with a support’m from Brazil I am a great admire this ability is impressive. Before I tried to speak but not to purchase a DVD is sent to Brazil. I would appreciate if you could spend some of your knowledge. email@example.com
El sonido es un … El sonido es un clicker. Es un reforzador condicionado que permite que el pollo sabe su comportamiento fue correcto y será recompensado. “El adiestramiento con clicker” es una forma de condicionamiento operante. Los pollos se les enseñó a reconocer el color y el color y formas. Si usted busca “adiestramiento con el clicker” encontrará gran cantidad de información. También pruebe a mirar a Bob Bailey y Marian y Karen Pryor.
Not clicking twice … Not clicking twice, but there was a room full of people all working at once, so you hear a ton of clicking in the background.
What’s that sound … What’s that sound before each movement of the chicken???
chickens instinctively recognize these colors or are trained for it?
chickens or recognize the figures are also trained to recognize them??
Do not know if I fully understand the questions
I am Latina and I had to use a translator!
que es ese sonido … que es ese sonido antes de cada movimiento del pollo???
los pollos reconocen esos colores por instinto o son entrenados para ello??
los pollos reconocen las figuras o tambien son entrenados para reconocerlas????
No se si me entienda bien las preguntas
yo soy latina y tuve que utilizar traductor!!!
Why do you click … Why do you click twice?
They believe that … They believe that cause it’s very convenient to think that hens are dumb while killing and eating them. But it’s not a matter of intelligence, it’s a matter of being able to suffer and this is why I don’t eat animals anymore.
and people believe … and people believe chickens are dumb which they may not be all that bright but not dumb.
how do you teach … how do you teach it to do thoughs tricks?
wow thats amaising! … wow thats amaising! how the heck did you train her to do that? or is it a her, im not sure??? thats so cool anyway great job. and another question wats his/her name? just wondering!
Thank you- … Thank you- wonderful video. I loved the color and shape discrimination, gave me lots of ideas to work with my hen and other animals! Clicker training rocks!!! and is lots of fun too!!!!
Wow, seems your … Wow, seems your chicken is smarter than my cat. It only took some moments to shape a new behavior, whereas it took days for my cat to do only one shaped behavior. Maybe it wasn’t the cat maybe it was the trainer! The chicken seems like instant gratification for the trainer since it learns so fast and is eager to do the actions! Sigh, now I wish I had a chicken to train.
please tell me how … please tell me how to do this i would love to know
exactly why i love … exactly why i love them chickens are so smart!
this is so … this is so facinating,
i am doing a year 12 biology experiment on animal behavious and i have a few questions about this as i was thinking of training a chicken for it.
firstly does it have to be a grown chicken i only want it to peck a target and i dont really have a place to keep a full grown one, will it work with a chick perhaps?
when you are training the chickens what are the main things you could record (eg. reaction time, amount of correct and incorrect responses etc)
