Is this chicken under some kind of hypnotic spell?
A man and his family living off-grid in Spain have filmed themselves appearing to hypnotize a chicken… by drawing two lines in the sand in front of the bird’s beak!
If you’ve spent a lot of time on a farm with chickens, then you’re probably familiar with this trick. But for those of you who haven’t, it will blow your mind to see a chicken lie perfectly still after a simple set of instructions are followed. There are many biologists that think this is the ‘play-dead’ response that causes this ‘hypnosis’ which may be an attempt to fool predators.
