    Here is a list of 10 chickens facts you will like:
    1. Chickens can recognize over 100 faces.
    2. Chickens can figure out that when something is hidden it is not gone for good. This is something young children do not understand.
    3. Chickens have over 30 known vocalizations that mean different things, dogs only have 15.
    4. Chickens are capable of doing complex math problems and some can even learn to play tic tac toe.
    5. Chickens can’t taste sweetness in foods however they can detect salt, and most choose to avoid it.
    6. Chickens have dreams. This is proven because they have REM sleep.
    7. There were (might even still be) competitions on who's rooster could crow the most in 30 minutes the winner ended up being White Lightning who crowed 112 times in 30 minutes.
    Side note: The longest crower is Turkey's Denizli which can crow for up to 35 seconds.
    8. The droppings made by a chicken in its lifetime can power a 100 watt lightbulb for up to 5 hours.
    9. Chickens were first bred to fight not for meat or eggs.
    10. New research shows that chickens can be taught to run the thermostat of the chicken coop.

    Side Note: I once had a chicken named Trishy who could sit and give me her foot until she got taken by a fox.

    P.S. I am thinking of starting a Youtube Channel if you are interested in suscribing, just say Yes in the Poll. If you are not interested, that is OK too.
