Chickens can Learn too!
Me and Big Mamma during a "golfing" session. She must pick up a rock and drop
it into the cup to get a reward. She's almost as good as Tiger Woods! :D
I taught my four pet hens to do unique things in exchange for a treat--they
love catfood. Or rather they taught themselves with a little bit of trial and
error, some prompting, and a reward.
Chickens are able to learn new things and learn to do clever tricks just like
dogs, but they have to have been well-handled since birth.
