About Terry

Chicken Camp 101 (April 2012)


Exercises include observing and graphing (ethogram) chicken behavior. We'll explore how chickens acquire, store and process information. We'll practice mechanical skills with special attention to timing and eye-hand coordination. Lessons include systematic desensitization, capturing a behavior, shaping a behavior and the use of targets. We'll work on a three or four-component discrimination and conduct extinction trials.
