    I have a cornish X pullet isolated in a wire dog crate, within the coop.
    One of the little cups that hook onto the side of the crate for food and water had a broken clip, so I brought it into the house to fix it.
    Put it back on the door of the crate and filled it with water from a cup.
    All of the other CXs came running to try and get a drink of water from the cup, through the bars of the crate...

    ...with their five gallon waterer full of fresh water not two feet away.

    That is today's definition of a dumb chicken.

    Cornish Xs - sweet as pie, dumb as a box of rocks. [​IMG]

    Too funny!
    I agree, they are a great enjoyment and fun to watch, but intelligent? Nope...
