...and don't let any vego-diet-whatsit make you feel guilty either.  If the sizes were
reversed, those birds would gobble you up in a second and never think twice about it.

Chickens are gross and scary and this new information surprises me not a jot. Evil bastards. I should know - I've got six of the buggers >:(

this is not really particularly new news.... quite a while ago the idea of brain size and function being directly linked  was pretty much discredited..... and avian intelligence is well documented  certainly in the crow family the use of tools and complex language is apparent along with symbol recognition.... this said domestic fowl tend to be the lowest scorers in avain intelligence tests

also.... commuter pigeons exist in London which will board the tube line at certain stops and exit at others on a regular basis

there are dogs in Moscow who have figured out the same thing with their subway system, too.
