Chickens and PK

Some of you might remember a nifty little article in Wired Magazine about chickens using what appears to be PK on a robot. It’s come up from time to time in the chatroom.

If you are interested in reading the details about the story, check out the following link:

It goes to a PDF file of the journal article Wired’s story was based on. The title is Psychokinetic Action of Young Chicks on the Path of An Illuminated Source by René Peoc’h. It was published in the Journal of Scientific Exploration, Volume 9, Number 2, pp. 223-229, in 1995.

As might be expected of an academic paper, it gives considerably more detail about the experiment. It certainly makes for an interesting read.
