We knew that
Today I was reading BBC’s 100 things we learned in 2011. According to one of the articles it has been proven that chickens feel empathy. They did the test on moms and chicks by stressing out the chicks with air puffs to see if it stressed out the mom. The whole thing stressed me out just thinking about it. Anyone who has backyard chickens and has hatched knows the bond of mom and chick. Percy is 15 weeks old now and still sleeps between her two “moms”.
