I heard somewhere that birds don't have a sense of smell. Is this true? If so, how do they know when a skunk or fox has been in the area? Or do they rely solely on their sight?
I thought so but then the question got me wondering. I know whenever I give the girls something new, they seem to "sniff" it before trying a bite. They find a sucker to try it first and watch that one's reaction before the rest will try it. Funny to watch. So much they express in those little faces of theirs.Chickens have a very good sense of smell.
