    I was wondering what some of you thought was the smartest bird. I'm talking about things like guineas, chickens, turkeys, ducks, gees and peafowl, but also any others you might think of.

    I think I'd agree with that. But I kinda meant barnyard type birds.

    "A Murder of Crows is a visually stunning one-hour documentary that offers a rare and intimate glimpse into the inner life of one of the most intelligent, playful and mischievous species on the planet - the common crow."

    Notice the term 'species'

    They are smarter than dogs and cats.

    This documentary made me love crows [​IMG]

    Okay. Are you talking about different breeds of chickens?

    My smartest chicken is a mixed breed.
