How to herd a flock of chickens

Looks like I'm long overdue for a post here on my tips blog! I would like to share with you a neat trick that I learned for getting some certain animals, mainly chickens, to go where you want them to go. It works wonders for me especially if I want them to go into the coop before they think it is bedtime. Okay, drum roll please..... my extra special, super cool, incredible herding tool is.... the hose! That's right. I just turn on the water and the chickens go running. They don't like to get wet because they are birds so I spray the water towards them and they run for the chicken coop. It is wonderful! The duck of course likes the water so it doesn't work too well with her, but all the others go right in. It saves me time and frustration. Hopefully this little tip might help you too if you need to get some chickens going somewhere.
