The kennel owners wife now has chickens. She put them in the pigeon coop barn. It has three dividers, so no problem. Several days ago one of the roosters escaped and has been struting around the training area and close to where I park. I have taught Hank to leave the rooster alone and he will. Shadow not so much.

Today when I arrived the hens were out along with three roosters.

I was running my last leg of pattern blinds. 170 yds. I noticed one rooster and four hens were hanging just behind the bumper pile 5-10 yds. I sent Hank he went to the pile, picked up a bumper and returned without fault.

Talk about a poison bird. Good boy Hank!

Chickens are underrated as training birds. Watching a winger throw a live chicken with its feet tied is a thing of beauty. They land right where you want them, they don't carry like good flying birds, they scream like hell, and flap like hell. Priceless! Dogs Looove them, especially banty roosters. A banty can cure more problems than any other training bird or device I have found yet! Probably can create as many as they cure though but that's dog training :)

now look who is giving away training secrets;-).....I still think the man that sells us the banty's in Idaho thinks we are cooking them for adobo:razz::razz:
Maybe it's a Northwest thing?????

very well could be, Mr McFall and John Luther used them in the 60's when they trained with Gonia Sr. in the NW, at least that's what they told me...
