The Manual - How to hypnotise a chicken

You will need a piece of white chalk. Holding the chicken with two hands, gently lay it on its side. With one hand holding its feet, allow the chicken's neck and head to lay flat on the ground.

With your free hand wave the piece of chalk in its vision to grab the chicken's attention. Then proceed to draw a straight line about 1ft long, working away from the bird's beak.

Repeat this several times until you notice that the chicken's gaze is locked onto the line.

Slowly remove your hand from the chicken's body. The chicken will be left in a trance state and should lie perfectly still for a short period of time.

To wake the chicken, simply clap your hands over it, snapping it out of its trance.

WARNING: Do not leave the chicken in the hypnotised state for a long period of time or force the chicken on to its side if it is struggling. This could injure or cause unnecessary stress to the chicken.
