Fancy that!

Your Chickens - - Egg-sposé -

Did you know that chick­ens can sleep with one eye open and one eye closed? Are they asleep or awake? Ac­tu­ally both! They can let one half of the brain sleep, while the other half stays awake in case of dan­ger. Af­ter a while they may change sides so each half of the brain gets some sleep. If they feel quite safe, they can choose to close both eyes and rest com­pletely. Chick­ens also en­joy tak­ing very short naps when they need a break dur­ing the day, but un­like us they can go a long while with­out sleep if ne­c­es­sary. They even dream – but no­body knows what they dream about!
