You can hypnotize chickens

You can Hypnotize Chickens

A chicken can be hypnotized, or put into a trance by holding its head down against the ground, and continuously drawing a line along the ground with a stick or a finger, starting at its beak and extending straight outward in front of the chicken.

If the chicken is hypnotized in this manner, it will remain immobile for somewhere between 15 seconds to 30 minutes, continuing to stare at the line.

  • As far as I've heard it's not hypnosis per se, it's part of a Fight / Flight / Freeze reaction mechanism of sorts.
