After the close of the IQ-Zoo in the mid-1980s, Bob and Marian Bailey continued to host workshops throughout the United States and  instruct students in the principles and skills of animal training. 

Chickens were often used as training models for the hundreds of trainers world-wide who came to Hot Springs, AR, to learn about using operant procedures to train animals.  On the left, we see an example of  reinforcement using food.  The clicker on the handle of the cup serves as a bridging stimulus between the behavior and the reinforcer.  Through these clicker-training workshops, birds can learn the behaviors shown below (and many  other types of behavior).
