Classes are 1 hour long for 8 weeks and conducted utilizing the Zoom virtual meeting platform. Classes are limited to: • Ages 12 & up* • 8 working participants ($225): You will need continual access to a chicken. There will be homework! As soon as you register, you will receive detailed information on how to select and prepare your chicken partner for the course. During the course, instructions will be given for making simple props from things you have around the house. You will have the opportunity to work with Terry one-on-one during class sessions • 12 auditing registrants ($170): You will be involved in Q&A and some people-only skills. Other Important Class Details: • Classes are taught in English. If interpretation is needed, please contact us for a private virtual chicken camp. KARE is not responsible for providing an interpreter. This could affect class time and pricing. • Each week all participants receive class notes plus supplemental educational documents • Training area for each working participant should be in a quiet area free of distractions. The area needs a table at least 6 feet in length, a computer with a camera (preferably laptop) and a chair. • All chickens used in training need to be hens, no roosters. Each working participant should have a chicken of their own to work with. During class, the chicken should be kept in a holding area within easy reach of the working table and the computer. Wire dog crates work well for keeping the chickens contained during class while not working with them. • CEU credits for IAABC and CPDT will be available for both working and auditor participants. In this virtual course, you’ll get the information from Terry’s traditional Chicken Camps which is designed to practice animal training. The methods will involve marker-based positive reinforcement techniques. The goal of the course is to help you be a better trainer of any species, including humans. The course will provide practical application for the principles of classical and operant conditioning. Observation and timing skills are practiced. A foundation of target training and discrimination is followed by teaching the chicken to negotiate a simple, chained obstacle course.
