    err.... hate to disappoint anyone, but, it's all about a combination of food and kindness.

    As long as you don't terrorize them, a regular habit of calling and feeding will produce this effect quite nicely.

    As a lad on the farm, I could bring the cattle in with a call or two without having to go around them and 'drive' them. They knew the routine and I knew the routine, pretty simple really.

    It's actually a pretty good way to assess if any of them are not feeling well. Any that don't come in with the others or are hanging back a bit, might need some attention.

    Right then I'll get started on em at work tomorrow ! One call, one feed, and action , after a week they should catch on.

    Why do i feel that the guys at work arn't like those happy little chickens .
