One Smart Chickie - Ashley

I own a few pet chickens 
which I have had for the past 6 years. 

I believe chickens are much more intelligent than people give them credit for. 
Most of the videos you will see on YouTube of Smart Chickens are those of chickens coming for food. Chickens will run towards you for a food treat and they have been clicker trained as well. All of this is food motivation as chickens are always ready to grab a treat.

Some of my chickens learned their name and one would walk on a leash. As in the first video, chickens will come running by name when they want a treat.

* Please excuse the silly and somewhat irritating "chicken talk" voice made by me. :)

In the following videos you will see that Ashley learned to go to bed and lie down on command. There is no food motivation offered whatsoever. My husband thought is a coincidence so I had her repeat this several times, Now he is amazed.
