    Thanks, I hadn't read this one. Even as an abstract I found it interesting.

    This is more of a duck than a chicken. I would love to have the equipment and the opportunity to investigate predator recognition more thoroughly.
    If chickens can discriminate between predators then surely this must be learnt behavior.
    Each country, area has different predators so it is hard to see how it could be genetic.
    This is really important because it says yet more about chicken intelligence.

    @Shadrach, this is fabulous! Thank you! I’m going to start reading it right now. Dinner is in the oven, so not sure how much I’ll get through tonight, but I can’t wait to read it!

    Finished it and enjoyed it! (Had to fit in watching a movie with my visiting sister-in-law, too).

    I think there is a limited supply of relevant studies and of course, the reluctance to make the investment needed for the research.
    The links the author provides in the text can lead to further info. The problem is many of the papers are in university archives and getting access to them often requires membership.

    Yeah, I miss my college days and biotech days when I had access to whatever info I wanted. Not super interested in paying $35 per article as a member of the public.
