There is a lovely article in today's SMH:
Chickens 'capable of love, jealousy, selfishness and lust.
Those of us who keep chickens know they have personalities. The rest of the world will just have to trust us.

I don't agree with all of it, especially the infanticide/suicide bit but like all animals I think they have their own personalities and behaviours.
