    Chickens are capable of feeling empathy, scientists believe.

    "Domestic chickens display signs of empathy, the ability to ''feel another's pain'' that is at the heart of compassion, a study has found.

    The discovery has important implications for the welfare of farm and laboratory animals, say researchers.

    Empathy, long thought to be a defining human trait, causes one individual to be affected by the emotional state of another.

    Feelings are ''mirrored'' in the observer, leading to a shared experience of being happy, sad or distressed."
