The Life Cycle of a Baby Chicken By: Jose Vallin

Interestings FactsChickens are able to remember and recognise over 100 individuals; they can also recognise humans. Like other birds and mammals, chickens experience REM sleep, which is associated with dreaming.Chickens have very sophisticated social behaviour with a dominance hierarchy where higher individuals dominate subordinate individuals.
