Step 7: Final Thoughts

Picture of Final Thoughts

Thanks for taking the time to read about my exploits.

I had seen a video about this on youtube about a year ago, and my brother and I have been talking about seeing if it is real ever since.  We took the time this weekend to find out, and lo and behold, it was true!  

Have you ever hypnotized a chicken?  If so, post a video link in the comments below so we can see, and I'll send you an electronic patch for your profile!

Please take a minute to rate, subscribe, comment and follow me on facebook, I love hearing back from people and I've always got lots more in the works!

**** Update 4/6/12:  Thanks to everyone who's mentioned in the comments that this brings back fond memories of childhood or farm life!  I'm glad my humble little instructable could spark recollections of good times.

when I was a kid I had a favourite chicken. she would come up to me and peck me on the leg until I gave her some food. :P she would eat out of my hand n everything.

poor thing was murdered by a fox :'( if you do get chickens then get only hens because roosters are noisy and fight. also keep them out of gardens ;)

I used to hypnotize our chickens by simply laying them on their backs then stroking their fronts with two fingers. Didn't always work but when it did, it worked well. I have "hypnotized" a chicken for over 3 minutes that way.
I'm gonna try that with my neighbor's nasty little kid!

Now that would be an experiment!
I heard that part of the reason that chickens can be hypnotized is because each eye on either side of their head sees the line and it throws them off, but I'm not expert either. I think my parents just butchered their last one, but in a month or so I'll give it shot with the new ones :)
