"The Social Life of Chickens"
by UPC President Karen Davis
What Lies Behind the Veil of Chicken
"In this essay, I discuss the social life of chickens and the
mental states that I believe they have and need in order to participate in
the social relationships that I have observed in them. What follows is a
personalized, candid discussion of what I know, what I think I know, and what
I am unsure of but have observed relevant to the minds of chickens in their
relationships with each other and with other species and with me."
