Wonder no more! Here’s how to hypnotize a chicken. Learn to calm a high-strung bird with the oscillating finger method or sternum stroke method.
Oscillating Finger Method
1) Place the chicken on its side with a wing under its body. Hold it down gently with one hand. Note: You will want to make sure its head is flat on the table.
2) Using a finger from your other free hand, move your finger back and forth in front of the bird’s beak. The key is to go from the tip of its beak (without actually touching the beak) to a point that is about four inches from the beak.
