Spontaneous Beginners’ Seminar Clicking Chickens

There are some seminar places still available in our one-day Chicken Camp for beginners on Thursday, 11 October 2018.

This is a workshop for anyone who takes an interest in training with positive reinforcement and clicker training. You do not need to know anything about chickens in order to have a go at training with them 😉

Chickens are perfect training partners: they are fast and direct in their responses and help us develop our skills. Chicken Camps are designed to improve the vital training skills in order to become a better trainer for whatever animal species you work with in your daily life. By solving various training tasks, the participants enhance their timing and observational skills. Trainer games and theory are an integral part of the workshop, because only if you know what you do, your animal can do what you want.

Topics:

  • Definition and effects of positive and negative reinforcement and positive and negative punishment
  • The A: B-> C in operational conditioning
  • Manual training skills: How to effectively click and feed
  • Learn how to carry chickens stress-free
  • Timing: Why is it fundamental to the learning process to know exactly when to apply a primary and a secondary reinforcer?
  • Rate of reinforcement: Training task ‘orbiting an object’
  • Criteria: Training a target
