    i believe that chickens dream just like humans for when they sleep scientist learned that chickens have rapid eye movement such as we do when we are dreaming. What's your opinion on this?[​IMG]

    I'm sure they dream, but REM is not indicitive of dreams. It is merely a correlaton where when study participants are awaken during thoes times, has a higher percentage of patients saying they were in a dream. It's like 80% ocurance of dream in REM with 60% else wise or something. Don't quite remember.

    I'm sure chickens have happy dreams of corn and bugs, with nightmares of coons and goblins eating them up.

    *They say most dreams are negative in nature. [​IMG]
