Ideas for experiments to run on a chicken farm

If I had an animal city, I’d probably start with chickens. Some initial questions I might ask:

  • does a chicken do path finding?
  • can a chicken be trained to collect eggs and move them to a specific location?
  • can a chicken be trained to clean itself?
  • could chickens be trained to cleanup their home?
  • how many concepts do chickens seem to have?
  • what is the sophistication of a chicken concept?
  • do chickens have multimodal pattern recognition?
  • can chickens distinguish human words?
  • what language primitives can they understand?
  • what does their short term memory look like?
  • what does their long term memory look like?
