Chicken Shivers

Ever get shivers when listening to certain kinds of music? Well it turns out that humans are not the only species to feel the pleasure of an emotive tune. Chickens are also recorded as displaying a shiver response, according to a neuroscientist called Pankepp, who played a variety of records to a room full of poultry.

And their favourite album, I hear you ask? Apparently the biggest shiver response from the chickens came while playing the Pink Floyd album ‘The Final Cut’.

If you have chickens on your farm and fancy doing your own musical research, let us know what happens!
