This Video Shows How to Hypnotize a Chicken with Just a Line in the Dirt

This Foolproof Method For Hypnotizing A Chicken Uses Just One LineThis man draws a line in front of a chicken, and then the chicken relaxes. Watch what happens when he erases the line.

In a short but amazing video, this man shows us how his neighbor hypnotizes chickens. He puts the chicken’s beak down onto the ground, then draws a line in front of him. The results are beyond belief.

One fan explained the phenomenon behind this strange trick: “This is called “tonic immobility” animals get like this when they sense a potential predator so when he sees the sand move they think something is going to kill him so he plays dead a lot like possums.” Fascinating stuff.
