Chickens are dumb and cowardly.

As birds — or animals, for that matter — go, chickens are pretty intelligent. They can learn to count and understand the concept of zero. They can be trained to do tricks and to recognize colors. They can figure out how to get out of almost any pen you put them in, sooner or later. And chickens learn by observing and copying other chickens.
