At Easter, children traditionally hunt for eggs in the garden; however, chickens are more than just suppliers of eggs. It is time that we take a minute to pay tribute to these animals: Did you know that chickens lay up to 300 eggs every year and their cognitive abilities are similar to those of a dog or a cat? There’s more – chickens have an REM sleep phase (rapid eye movement) and are therefore also able to dream, much like us humans. Another surprising fact is that they can taste salt, but not sweet flavours.
