My clients are Romanian, Burmese, Cambodians and Philippino. How often have you used or heard someone saying “Ah, you are chickening out”.  I checked the Urban dictionary to see what does it mean? Well, I found out that it means to decide at the last moment not to do something you said you would do, because you are afraid.

I like chickens and I here to defend them. So I googled “chicken personality” and to my delight I can report that chickens have great personalities http://veg.ca/animal-issues/farm-animals/chickens-personality/ although quite funny to find such great  recommendations in a vegetarian association’s website.

“Chickens are inquisitive, interesting animals who are as intelligent as mammals like cats, dogs, and even primates. They are very social and like to spend their days together, scratching for food, cleaning themselves in dust baths, roosting in trees, and lying in the sun.

Chickens are precocious birds. Mother hens actually cluck to their unborn chicks, who chirp back to their mothers and to one another from within their shells. Unlike most birds, baby chickens can survive without their mothers and without the comfort of a nest—they come out of the shell raring to explore and ready to experience life.

Chickens understand sophisticated intellectual concepts, learn from watching each other, demonstrate self-control, worry about the future, and even have cultural knowledge that is passed from generation to generation.

Chickens comprehend cause-and-effect relationships and understand that objects still exist even after they are hidden from view. This puts the cognitive abilities of chickens above those of small human children”
