Handling your chicken


Many chickens can become very tame.

They will quickly learn that their owner brings them food and will follow you around as if you were leader of their flock.

When they are tame, be careful when eating outside as they will quite happily jump onto tables and steal tasty things out of your hands.

Most hybrids are similar in size and colour, so if you want to be able to identify them easily and give them names, you can differentiate them using coloured leg rings.
