    I noticed how people think chickens aren't smart, but I don't even see how that's possible.

    Yes, sometimes fragile chickens like silkies suffer from brain damage, which is caused by either trama, being born that way, or being hurt on it's head. These are all based on what humans do, OR, just how it's born! Either than that, chickens are really smart!

    They, I've noticed, remember things easily. as either babies or grown ups they will remember their owner or a human (Or animal) they love, but easily figure out who they don't know. One time my chicken started playing a game on my phone, and I wasn't surprised at how she did it so easily. One time there was a worm, and two little things that looked the same but they ONLY ate the worm, and were not fooled by the fake ones.

    They know what's food and what's not, but I really don't know if it's possible for them to eat something that would kill them, considering they'll eat every type of weed or grass in a instant. LOL

    But, my point is that chickens are way smarter than humans think.

    Humans think they are the smartest animal. But it is the dolphins.

    Actually, wrong!;) Chickens have been proved by MANY scientists that they were more intelligent than dolphins!:) And I can't disagree, I mean, dolphins don't just decide to play a app that they've never seen before:p. But all animals are smart, probably the same amount.

    No, but people were scared and they just decided to shoot her and her calf because she was considered "dangerous" :'(

    I know, right? It horrifies me to know that such beautiful, graceful animals murdered daily. But you can't do anything about it, I guess.
