Research suggests that we might have underestimated the intelligence of chickens. Studies have shown that they exhibit intelligent behaviour within just a few hours of hatching. In fact they are cleverer than four year old toddlers. Hens are able to master a number of complex skills including numeracy, self control and structural engineering. They are also able to show basic empathy, they can plan ahead and exhibit self control.
